Medical Assisting

WHAT IS A MEDICAL ASSISTANT?

The Medical Assistant is a professional, multi-skilled individual dedicated to assisting in patient care management. This practitioner performs administrative and clinical duties in physicians’ offices and other ambulatory care settings.

A Medical Assistant who is sufficiently qualified by education and experience may manage emergency situations and be responsible for personnel and office management. Competence in the field also requires that a medical assistant display professionalism, communicate effectively, and provide instruction to patients.

Although doctors have employed assistants in their practices for many years, computerization and technologic advances have created more opportunities for qualified medical assistants and increased their responsibilities. As a result, the need for those trained in this profession has grown.

Medical assisting is recognized as an important allied health profession. Employment opportunities are abundant, extremely varied, and increasing every day because of the growing concern about the availability of quality healthcare for every individual in the United States.
