The AMCA has partnered with the US Trichology Institute (USTI) to create this certification, which is part of the USTI’s trichologist program of study.
For the certification exam specifically, an individual must be proficient in skills across seven domains related to trichology:
Anatomy and Physiology
Effects of Drugs and Medicine
Phases of Hair Growth
After completing the USTI program of study and the AMCA TC exam, an individual is ready to enter the field as a dermatologist assistant, trichology clinical researcher, trichologist counselor, or assistant in oncology for cancer patients.
To pass the EHRC exam, a student must be proficient in skills across four domains:
Electronic Health Records/Functionality
Entry Level Billing and Coding
Medical Law & Ethics
Even though EHR specialists don’t often work directly with clients, their position is critical in maintaining accurate data, confidentiality, and HIPAA compliance for healthcare facilities!
