Medical Assisting

What is a Medical Assistant?

Medical assistants are allied health professionals who work beside physicians and other healthcare workers in doctor’s offices, hospitals, outpatient facilities and other medical settings.

Often medical assistants perform both administrative and clinical duties including medical coding and billing, performing basic laboratory tests, drawing blood, preparing patients for examinations, and other duties as directed.

Physicians continue to rely heavily upon medical assistants as their practices grow, allowing the physicians to see more patients.
