Medical Assistant Instructors

Before teaching any class, medical medical assistant instructors should have a clear understanding of state and local laws that affect medical assistants at the work place and understand the medical office workflow and duties. This requires first hand experience and an organized teaching plan that outlines all administrative and clinical skills, as well as ethical and moral considerations. Their students should be taught who is responsible for what, how to handle patient care assignments, customer services and proper responses to upset patients and emergency situations. Most importantly, their instructors should clearly address who is the authority in charge and ultimately responsible for all health assessments, triage, administration of medications, treatment procedures and instruct them how incidences must be reported following the so-called chain of command in an ambulatory medical office setting. These skills are essential and every medical assistant student should know them.

appropriate standards. This includes teaching administrative, clinical, technical and non-technical skills,
enhancing team working skills, improving their oral and interpersonal communication skills, work ethics,
refining collaborative abilities with others and reinforcing cognitive traits and problem solving skills that
their students will have to rely on once they get their first job. Also, medical assisting laboratory
techniques and safety standards, OSHA, basic pharmacology, including dosage calculations and
administering medications, medical transcription pads, keyboarding, basic anatomy and physiology,
