Their job is to provide assistance to physicians and doctors when required. They need to have a vivid idea about the basics of treatment as they are often made to assist in an ambulance for medical emergencies. Though their jobs are mostly within clinics and heath care centers like hospitals, at times, they also need to provide first-hand medication consultation at the pharmacy or offer basic treatment for home visits. Apart from this, they are also trained for administrative work, which is related to the same field.
Medical assistants are the ones who would decode and understand the requirement of a professional doctor while treatment and provide help with prompt service. For example, if a doctor is treating a wound or a bleeding cut, it is the job of the assistant to provide with all the needful medicine and instrument or equipment to take care of the wound. At times they might have to give an injection or stitch the area if required. These assistants also maintain records, database of patients and their medical situations. For this, one requires having basic administrative knowledge as well as management skills. A medical assistant has almost every responsibility that needs to be undertaken for running a clinic in a healthy and smooth manner.
