Back Office Medical Assistant Jobs

Back Office Medical Assistant Overview


Back Office Medical Assistants are responsible for recording preliminary patient data before passing it on to a physician. A Back Office Medical Assistant will typically greet the patient and lead them back to their exam room before weighing them, taking blood pressure, going over the patient's medical history and asking a few questions. Some assistants will even draw blood or give injections when necessary. At times, a Back Office Medical Assistant may be required to help the physician administer treatments.

Back Office Medical Assistant Educational Requirements


While only a high school diploma is required, the vast majority of medical assistants have specialized training from a technical school. Roughly a quarter of medical assistants have associate degrees. In addition, a good base of medical knowledge, clear speaking and listening skills, and conversational skills are all helpful. It is important that a medical assistant be able to put patients at ease while they wait, and they must be trained in emergency first aid, such as CPR. A strong stomach is required as working with blood is a common occurrence.
