On Feb. 17, 2021, the AMA held a webinar in the AMA STEPS Forward™ series: "Medical assistants: Recruitment and retention."
With 1,600 guidelines that must be addressed and only a 20-minute visit, providing care requires a team. The medical assistant’s role is crucial but too often underutilized. Recruiting and retaining quality staff is also challenging.
This webinar focuses on how to increase the number of medical assistants that are trained with innovative programs and retain the best.
