What do Medical Assistants Do?

Medical assistants are responsible for administrative and clinical tasks in varied healthcare settings which may include physicians offices, hospitals, ambulatory service facilities and medical clinics. They also work closely with patients as they greet them, record medical history and assist in checking patient vitals. Other job related tasks may include processing insurance and filing paperwork. At Mildred Elley, our curriculum covers each of these tasks to help position students for career placement as a Medical Assistant.
