Unpaid externship, great experience.
Pros: great learning experience, great employees
Cons: it was an unpaid externship
I completed a 60 hour externship at Dr. Malde and Dr. Zache Internal Medicine. I learned a lot in a short amount of time.
I was taught how to preform front office and back office medical assistant tasks.
Front office: filing using the number system and alphabetically, faxing,copying, answering the phone, preparing charts, scanning charts, and using an EMR and E-scripting program.
Back office: calling back patients, taking vitals, giving injections, assisting doctor during exams, urinalysis, and filling out lab forms.
My co workers were great; Very helpful and encouraging to me while I was there.
