Patient registration, vital signs,interview patient, recruit patients for Centering program, assist doctors, nurses, and residents with exams and procedures. Developed templates for Family Medical Leave requests, scheduling in IDX and reviewing medical records in All script. This is a difficult place to work in, however the work itself was great. I loved what I did as a Medical Assistant.However,after working there for several years, I only got a raise twice and it was less than .30 cent. In the department, I was employed in: continuing your education was frowned upon. Even though, they offer tuition reimbursement. the employees defined who you were as a person and had the final evaluation of if you would keep your job or not. If they liked you, you had a job, if they didn't you would be fired next Thursday, the day with no clinic is scheduled.The employees were like a click or klan, they will come for you, even if you didn't send for them. It was best to remain neutral and stick to yourself. Eat lunch in your car or away from the employees or you were sure to be in a whole lot of mess before the end of the week.
The most enjoyable thing about working for UT was helping the patients, following them throughout their pregnancy and getting to see outcome, the precious baby.
