Why Become a Medical Assistant?
A career as a medical assistant is fulfilling, has a wide variety of experience, and does not require years of extensive studies. Medical assistants work alongside doctors and nurses to enhance the patient’s experience and ensure that medical offices are running smoothly. Medical assistants do a wide range of administrative and clinical work. As a medical assistant, you may help with administrative duties like scheduling appointments, managing patients’ medical records, and corresponding with insurance companies. On the patient care side of the job, medical assistants greet patients, take vital signs, draw blood, handle laboratory specimens, and perform diagnostic tests. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Handbook, employment of medical assistants is expected to increase much faster than the average for all other occupations. Becoming a medical assistant allows you to work in the healthcare field and truly make a difference without having to complete many years of expensive schooling.
