MEDICAL ASSISTANTS RECOGNITION DAY
Medical Assistants Recognition Day is observed on Wednesday of the third full week in October. One of the fastest-growing careers in the nation, medical assistants make medical offices run more smoothly and instrumental to overall quality patient care.
Medical assistants are health professionals who support the work of physicians and other health professionals, usually in a clinic setting. Their responsibilities can include both administrative and clinical duties. Depending on the type and size of the facility, what state, certifications available and the laws affected by where they work, medical assistants can play a variety of roles.
On Medical Assistant’s Recognition Day, take time to thank these healthcare professionals for their dedication.
