Before you see your physician during a typical office visit, it’s very likely you’ll interact with a medical assistant first. Medical assistants serve an important role on the healthcare team by performing a wide variety of clinical and clerical skills. If you want a career that features opportunities to work in the administrative, laboratory, and patient care areas of a physician’s office or clinic, medical assisting may be just what you’re looking for.
