For all students in medical assisting programs. The book can be used with a main text to enhance affective skills and professional traits; or as a standalone text in a capstone course preparing students for externships and entering the workforce.


PROFESSIONALISM IN MEDICAL ASSISTING will give students a competitive edge in medical assisting by helping them achieve the level of professionalism that today's medical employers demand. Clear and easy to read, it guides students in working cohesively as team members, treating all patients with respect and kindness, and behaving with a strong moral and ethical compass. Chapters are organized to flow in succession for medical assistants who are completing classroom training, progressing into externships, and then seeking to enter the field.
