Dallas Medical Jobs for Assistants

The number of Dallas medical jobs for assistants will grow rapidly in the coming years.

Medical assistants perform various administrative and clinical tasks that help health facilities run smoothly. On the administrative side, they may schedule appointments, maintain medical records, write up bills, and code for insurance purposes.

When performing clinical duties, medical assistants must work under the supervision of a physician. They may be responsible for taking and recording vital signs and medical histories, preparing patients for examination, drawing blood, and administering medications.
