Dr. Doran’s Post on the Fascinating Truth about Medical Assisting:
After a recent conversation it occurred to me that not only people who came to the United but most born-and-raised Americans are not familiar with the variety of education and jobs in the medical field. One of these professions is Medical Assisting.
I, myself, a trained Dermatologist from another country, discovered the profession by accident. I was told by the head of the Department of Dermatology at Rush that all dermatology and plastic surgery practices are looking for Estheticians with deeper medical training and broader scope of practices to enable them to do laser and other advanced procedures. He said that it would be very beneficial for Clinical Estheticians (who were limited in their responsibilities) to get trained in Medical Assisting. I was puzzled by his suggestion. Like a lot of people, I thought that Medical Assistants were the same as Certified Nursing Assistants, who help take care of the disabled and the elderly.
Still, on the way back, I kept thinking about it and wondered if I had missed something important. Later that day, I retold the conversation to our manager, Anastasia, and asked her to look into what Medical Assistants are.
After thorough research, she presented what the profession was, the educational requirements, and the scope of their practice. And I immediately thought about what a great complementary match it was, both for our Academy and for our Clinical Esthetics graduates!
