If so, consider training to be a medical assistant. And if you live in north suburban Atlanta, consider getting your medical assistant training at Everest Institute in Norcross.
Medical assistants provide valuable support services in physicians’ offices, clinics and other health care facilities. They often take patient vital signs, create and update medical records, take blood samples, give injections, prepare medical instruments and assist doctors during examinations.
To be a successful medical assistant, you need to be organized, empathetic, good with oral communication, able to handle responsibility and work on your feet for long lengths of time. You also need to be trained in the basics of human anatomy, human diseases and medical procedures.
There’s a growing demand for medical assistants both in Georgia and throughout the United States in general. In Georgia, the number of medical assistant jobs is projected to increase 27 percent between 2010 and 2020, according to the Georgia Department of Labor Workforce Information and Analysis.
