         We all know that nurses are in demand in other countries now but unfortunately not all nurses get the chance to work abroad for some reasons. In that case, especially in the states, medical assistants are hired. To be a medical assistant, you have to have a high school diploma plus training about the medical field. But employers prefer to hire individuals who have a certificate from a medical assistant school. A medical assistant’s job varies. They can do the front office and administrative and clinical tasks of the physician and other health practitioners. They can file patient’s medical record; arrange hospital admissions and laboratory services. A certified medical assistant can also perform the checking of vital signs, the height and weight of the patient, and assisting the doctors during the examinations. But these tasks depend on the law of each state. So there are a lot of people in their country who enroll in medical assistant schools to become a certified medical assistant.
