A medical assistant is an allied health professional who plays an integral role within a health care team. Medical assistants are cross-trained to perform administrative and clinical duties to assist physicians and other licensed health care professionals in patient care. Medical assistants usually work in an ambulatory setting, outpatient departments, and physician offices. The duties of a medical assistant vary with the location, specialty, and size of practice.
