The assignment this week is to discuss pressing issues in our practice not yet discussed. This came at a perfect time for me, as I struggle with this issue almost on a daily basis. We all as professionals are aware that while working as a team in our practices, a good medical assistant can make you or break you. Medical assistants (MA) have an important role with-in the setting and in my office we have several that are fully competent, have been with our office for long lengths of time, and have some further education exceeding the minimal MA training required. Then, we have the handful of MA’s that can’t function without direct supervision constantly and even then at times things are completed in accurately, causing more work for the rest of the team, including myself.

A day in the life of a modern day female physician assistant depends greatly on the personal preference of said woman. One of the best things about taking physician assisting into consideration is the multiple jobs that one could choose from depending on what they want to specialize in. But no matter what job one chooses to specialize in, the activities, working conditions, and physical demands are all fairly similar. Physician assistants provide basic care in all areas of medicine including primary care, family medicine, and emergency medicine.
It is the indescribable bond between patients and their health care providers that drives me to pursue a career as primary care physician assistant. While all health care providers should strive to connect with and relate to their patients, it is the privilege of primary care providers to form close bonds with their patients that they may treat for the rest of their lives.

Being surrounded with some unwell patients that have been in hospital for more than a month and having no one visiting them. I imagine myself being in their position wanting attention and a moment of laughter. When I started volunteering at St. Francis Hospital the first in my mind was to make the place have a positive change within the patient's. My duties are to help the nurses with their patients and communicating with patients with their needs. When passing out their food trays or helping them with any issues they have. I always desire to have a small conversation with the patient and giving them a little attention for them to not feel lonely. I end up having a good connection with patients and they love seeing me around while assisting

The reason for this is the increase of the aging population. Preventative care will be the drive behind this surge for the demand of Certified Medical Assistants and other medical professionals (Bureau). This allows me the comfort of knowing I can continue to do what I love for years to
