Essential Team Member
Become a vital part of a team to support the health of your community and maintain a fulfilling career knowing that you're contributing to a more significant cause. Time and again, we've heard of stories about medical office assistants supporting a medical team in a variety of medical settings such as physicians, dentists, or specialist clinics.
You can just ask Larry Becker, who is the lead MOA for the First Nations health centre in East Vancouver. "My goal is to be able to create a comfortable home environment where somebody feels comfortable to come in and be safe," he says. "I think it definitely drops down one of many barriers that Aboriginal people face when it comes to health care."
If you need to work your schedule around your family, a job as a medical office assistant could provide that for you. Some clinics and health centres may operate with flexible schedules, which will allow you the opportunity to work when it's convenient for you.
