Medical assistants work in medical offices and clinics to assist physicians, typically in outpatient or ambulatory care. They are instrumental in the field of patient care, making patients feel at ease and helping them understand the physician’s instructions.
As a Medical Assistant, you can expect to arrange appointments, medical records, insurance forms, and lab services for your patients behind the scenes. Alongside the physicians in your office, you will help explain treatments, prepare patients for their exams, administer medications, draw blood, and remove sutures and dress wounds.
