North Georgia Technical College is celebrating Medical Assistants Recognition Week this week, as designated by the American Association of Medical Assistants, or AAMA.
In addition, medical assistants across the country are also honored on Medical Assistants Recognition Day, which was Wednesday.
Medical assisting is an allied health profession whose practitioners function as members of the health care delivery team and perform administrative and clinical procedures.
The AAMA is the premier organization serving the professional interests and educational needs of medical assistants. It provides numerous services that help medical assistants put their careers on a successful and rewarding track and keep them there.
