Certified medical assistants are administrative professionals who work under the supervision of physicians in order to provide the office with administrative support. They also provide direct patient care by taking their clinical and medical histories, preparing patients for examinations and providing them with information on clinical and medical procedures.

The administrative aspect of certified medical assistants requires them to fill out insurance forms and schedule appointments along with many other office work related duties. They are expected to be graduates of an accredited medical assistant program in order to be able to apply for this position.
