Medical Assisting Degree

Associate of Applied Science

Medical assistants perform clinical and clerical tasks that keep the offices of physicians, podiatrists, chiropractors and optometrists running smoothly. Depending on the size of the practice, medical assistants may answer telephones, greet patients, update and file patient medical records, fill out insurance forms, handle correspondence, schedule appointments, arrange for hospital admission and laboratory services and handle billing and bookkeeping.

Clinical duties, which may vary according to state regulations, may include taking medical his-tories and recording vital signs, explaining treatment procedures to patients, preparing patients for examination and assisting during the examination.
