Historically, medical assistants in the United States were trained-on-the-job medical support staff without a specific group identity. The American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA) was founded in 1956.
Medical assistants have traditionally held jobs almost exclusively in ambulatory care centers, urgent care facilities, and clinics, but this is now changing. Medical assistants now find employment in both private and public hospitals, as well as inpatient and outpatient facilities.
Greater numbers of employers prefer or even require that the medical assistants they hire be certified. Professional certification is a voluntary process which is strongly backed by the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA) and a number of other well-respected certification bodies in the United States as a way to guarantee competency of a medical assistant at a job-entry level.
