Clinical Medical Assistant
Clinical Medical Assistant is an allied health professional who performs administrative and/or clinical tasks to support the work of physicians and other health professionals. They perform routine tasks and procedures such as measuring patients' vital signs, administering medications and injections, recording information in medical records-keeping systems, preparing and handling medical instruments and supplies, and collecting and preparing specimens of bodily fluids and tissues for laboratory testing. Professional certification is a way to measure competency of a medical assistant at a job-entry level. Certification for Medical Assistants is voluntary and optional, though encouraged by a number of certification bodies. Employers increasingly prefer or even require that the medical assistants they hire be certified.
