Eastland-Fairfield Career & Technical Schools is the perfect place for adults looking to further their
education or launch a new career. Our medical assistant program focuses on the dual administrative

Benefits of Becoming a Medical Assistant

A medical assistant certification can typically be earned in 9 months. Once earned, the certification
will be recognized in any state, opening up a variety of jobs in different areas. With the healthcare
industry steadily expanding, and medical assistants always in demand, finding a job should not be a problem.
 
Those in the industry report that they get to interface with cutting-edge medical equipment and
specialist, which keeps work exciting and challenging. Ultimately, the most rewarding part of the job
is the deep connection to the patients and the impact that the medical team has on their life.
 
Types of Jobs in the Field 
 
Another significant aspect of becoming a medical assistant is the variety of career options available
upon earning the certification. A clinical medical assistant supports physicians and nurses and workes directly with patients. On a practical level, this means taking patient histories, checking vital signs, collecting blood, and performing other services that are critical to proper care.
 
A certified medical assistant, on the other hand, required accredited certifications and is usually seen
in the waiting room greeting patients, filing records, and handling other bookkeeping duties. Similarly, an administrative medical assistant manages the paperwork and keeps things running
smoothly. This should includ scheduling, filing, insurance claims, and other office roles.
