Medical Assistant

How to become a Medical Assistant

Medical assistants work with a variety of health practitioners including chiropractors, podiatrists, and physicians. Their main responsibilities are either clinical or administrative and these duties ensure that the medical practice always runs smoothly. The nature of a typical medical assistant's job is largely dependent on the nature of the medical practice, the location, and the size of the practice. In smaller outfits medical assistants usually handle both clinical and administrative tasks but in larger facilities they are usually under the supervision of departmental heads.

Persons wishing to pursue careers as medical assistants can acquire the academic background required in vocational training high schools, junior colleges, and community colleges. A one-year course results in the awarding of a diploma or certificate and a 2-year program results in an associate degree. The course includes studies in medical terminology, physiology, and anatomy. Other important courses include typing, transcription, insurance handling, record keeping, and accounting. In addition students gain knowledge in first aid, clinical procedures, medicine administration, and laboratory techniques. Medical assistants are also taught medical law, ethics, patient relations, and office practices. Accredited programs usually require that the medical assistants have a gained experience through internship at a relevant facility. Medical assistants are required to have a high school education that has encompassed health, mathematics, biology, office skills, and computer skills. Most employers require that the medical assistants they hire have certification or relevant experience. There are a few organizations that offer certification and it is possible to be certified in a particular specialty e.g. optometry or podiatry. The desired medical assistant is a well-groomed person with the ability to communicate effectively with patients. Communication skills are vital considering that one has to explain the physician's instructions to the patients. Medical assistants can advance their careers by becoming medical assistant teachers, training further to join other health-based professions including nursing.

Medical assistants who tackle administrative duties normally carry out tasks that include organizing hospital admissions, organizing for laboratory services, filling of insurance forms, and updating and filing of patient's files. Other tasks that they perform while not necessarily being medically related include answering phones, arranging for appointments, serving as receptionist to receive patients and bookkeeping. For clinical duties, the range of tasks is regulated by State law. Some common duties include gathering patients' medical histories, taking note of vital signs, preparing patients for the medical examination, and assisting the physicians as they perform examinations.
