A medical assistant provides direct and immediate support to physicians in clinical settings or private practices, taking care of many administrative and clinical tasks to streamline treatment. Medical assistants may focus on administrative duties and work the front desk, greeting and checking in patients, updating their personal and insurance information, and ensuring their files are ready for examination. Other medical assistants work directly with the doctor, calling the patient back to an exam room, take vital signs such as temperature and blood pressure, and documenting their medical history and the reason for their visit. Once the doctor has seen the patient, you may be asked to prepare and submit prescriptions, draw blood or request other laboratory services, administer medications or vaccinations, or take care of other patient needs.
