Medical Assistant Job Overview
Medical assistants are administrative professionals who work in a healthcare setting. They provide a number of administrative, medical and clerical services to a doctor’s office. This may include assisting patients with filling out admission forms, managing insurance information and updating records. The job of a medical assistant is not entirely administrative as they are required to perform many clinical duties as well which may include managing lab tests, taking samples, obtaining medical histories and preparing patients for medical or clinical procedures.
When writing a cover letter for an entry level medical assistant position, you need to find out your key abilities and skills and how to put them effectively in a cover letter. This is especially true if you are applying for this position without the required experience or changing your career path.
