Remington College's Medical Assistant diploma program can help you take the first step towards a career in the health care industry. As a student you will study proper patient care techniques, human anatomy and phlebotomy.
Medical assistants play a critical role in the daily operations of doctor's offices, clinics and healthcare facilities. As a healthcare professional, you'll be interacting with patients by taking vital signs, preparing them for exams and explaining what they're about to experience during their visit.
In addition to the personal interactions, you may be responsible for administrative duties that include filing medical records, handling insurance forms and scheduling appointments. You'll most likely report to a doctor or nurse and handle incoming communication to the office or department. Medical assistants are an important aspect of any healthcare operation and can make or break the patient's experience.
