Medical assistants work alongside physicians and nurses, performing administrative and clinical duties. They may schedule appointments, check in patients when they arrive for their appointments, and update medical records. Some also assist during exams and procedures. Medical assistants may also help during an examination, collecting samples for laboratory tests, and providing the patient with post-visit instructions.
Every October, Medical Assistants Recognition Week celebrates medical assistants who are at the heart of healthcare. Medical Assistants Recognition Day is observed on Wednesday of the third business week in October.
