Administrative Medical Assisting

AMAAll medical offices require one or more administrative medical assistants to function smoothly. With a growth expectancy of 31%, employment rates in this field are growing at twice the average rate (14%). These support staff members connect patients to doctors by being the point of contact for their medical office. Administrative medical assistants do not have any hands on interaction with patients, but do manage the scheduling, financial, and customer service aspect of patient care.

Duties for an administrative medical assistant might include:

  • Welcoming patients
  • Data entry of patient records
  • Scheduling appointments
  • Coordinating hospital and in-office procedures
  • Preparing and submitting hospital admittance forms
  • Billing and insurance document preparation
  • Maintaining correspondence
  • General office bookkeeping
