A Medical Assistant diploma allows you to perform both clinical and administrative duties.
As a medical assistant, you can work in a physician's office, primary care facility, clinic or other similar outpatient facilities. Medical assistants' duties are different according to the place of employment, but usually include administrative tasks such as answering phones, scheduling appointments, maintaining medical records, registering patients, and billing/insurance.
