About our Medical Assistant program: We also offer an online Medical Assistant program. In most cases Medical Assistants are non-licensed healthcare professionals that usually work under the supervision of a licensed physician or healthcare provider in a medical office, hospital, clinic or other healthcare setting. Where as a Nursing Assistant usually works in long term care facilities and helps provide care to the elderly. Medical assistants perform administrative and clinical tasks to keep the offices of physicians, podiatrists, chiropractors, and other health practitioners running smoothly. The duties of medical assistants vary from office to office, depending on the location and size of the practice and the practitioner's specialty. In small practices, medical assistants usually do many different kinds of tasks, handling both administrative and clinical duties and reporting directly to an office manager, physician, or other health practitioner. Those in large practices tend to specialize in a particular area, under the supervision of department administrators. Medical assistants should not be confused with physician assistants, who examine, diagnose, and treat patients under the direct supervision of a physician.
According to the United States Department of Labor, "Employment is projected to grow much faster than average, ranking medical assistants among the fastest growing occupations over the 2008–18 decade. Job opportunities should be excellent, particularly for those with formal training or experience". If you would like to learn more about our medical assistant program please click here.
