    Medical Assistant | Vista College


    by VistaCollege

    Medical Assistants assist physicians in various areas of a medical visit. Medical assistants have a wide range of skills acquired by training at a technical school which enables them to take care of the patients and seeing to many of their needs when visiting the doctor. Medical assistants prepare examination rooms by making sure they are clean and ready to be used. They also do some tasks directly involving a patient's care, such as take vital signs, give injections, perform x-rays and electrocardiograms. Finally, when an examination is over, medical assistants will clean the equipment and the room again. It is not unusual for medical assistants to be on hand to help out during surgical procedures and laboratory operations.
