Exceptional Patient Care: Medical Assistants create a positive patient care experience by greeting, preparing, exiting and following up with patients for providers according to established competency guidelines, policies and procedures.

Direct supervision of medical assistants means a physician or designated mid-level provider, must be immediately available to furnish assistance and direction, but does not require the supervising physician or designated mid-level provider be present in the room when medications are administered, or within any other physical boundary, as long as he or she is immediately available. Immediate availability means a supervising physician or designated mid-level provider can be physically present without delay and is not otherwise engaged in performing another procedure or service that he or she could not interrupt.


EDUCATION: High School or GED plus accredited Medical Assistant education or a minimum of one year equivalent job experience.


EXPERIENCE: Minimum of 3 months ambulatory or physician office experience preferred, to include school externships. Knowledge of basic laboratory equipment, physician office operations and medical terminology. Proficient in various office products and computer programs.
