What will I do as a Medical Assistant?

Medical Assistants greet patients in medical offices or other medical settings where they

help doctors with examinations and treatments.

They run routine lab tests such as urinalysis and blood counts.

They may take blood pressure readings and take temperatures.

They may give injections or perform ‘finger sticks’ to draw small amounts of blood

if they are properly trained.

Assistants may instruct patients about medication and self-treatment.

They prepare treatment rooms for patient examinations and sterilize

and arrange instruments and equipment used in treatment and diagnosis.

They check office and lab supplies and keep the waiting, consulting,

and examination rooms neat and orderly.

 


Where will I work?

Medical Assistants work in doctor's offices, clinics, hospitals, insurance companies,

government agencies, pharmaceutical companies, and educational institutions.

Benefits

Benefits normally include paid vacation, holiday, and sick leave.

Many Assistants also enjoy employer-paid health and dental insurance, and retirement plans.

 

What is the job outlook?

Medical Assistants are one of the fastest growing occupations in California.

Employment growth is expected because of the increase in the number of group practices,

clinics, and other healthcare facilities that need greater numbers of support personnel,

particularly the flexible Medical Assistant who can handle both administrative and clinical duties.

Because many health care employers prefer a trained staff, job prospects

should be best for Medical Assistants with formal training or experience.
