What do Medical Assistants do?

Medical assistants complete administrative and clinical tasks in hospitals, offices of physicians, and other healthcare facilities. They also do the following:
  • Record patient history and personal information
  • Measure vital signs, such as blood pressure.
  • Help physicians with patient examinations.
  • Give patients injections or medications as directed by physicians and as permitted by state law.
  • Schedule patient appointments
  • Prepare blood samples for laboratory tests.
  • Enter patient information into medical records.

Medical assistants take and record patients’ personal information. They must be able to keep that information confidential and discuss it only with other medical personnel who are involved in treating the patient.

lectronic health records (EHRs) are changing some medical assistants’ jobs. More and more physicians are adopting EHRs, moving all their patient information from paper to electronic records. Assistants need to learn the EHR software that their office uses.

Industry Certification and State Credential Exams:

Medical assistants are not required to be certified in most states.

Employment Outlook

Employment of medical assistants is projected to grow 16 percent from 2021 to 2031, much faster than the average for all occupations. About 123,000 openings for medical assistants are projected each year, on average. Many of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire.
