Medical Assistant Job Description Summary
Under general supervision, the medical assistant assists nurses, providers and patient navigators to support patient-care related functions. Depending on the specific medical assistant position you apply for, your duties will change slightly. For example, medical assistants applying to work in the GI Lab will differ slightly from medical assistants who apply to work in the Women’s Care Clinic. Ultimately, regardless of which medical assistant job you apply for, you are a critical part of the patient’s journey at Denver Health and are valued as such.
Denver Health does not require that you hold a high school diploma or GED to work as a medical assistant. Our standard medical assistant requirements include the following:
- It is required that a MA candidate has completed a 160-hour externship or six-months of direct patient care experience in an outpatient setting.
- Graduation from an accredited program in Medical Office Assisting or an accredited program of Licensed Practical Nursing with an active LPN license is a must.
