I am wondering if there is a difference between a Medical Office Assistant and a Medical Assistant?
I am going to school for Medical Office Assistant and I was starting to look at the jobs that would be available to me. I see both Medial Office Assistant as well as Medical Assistant, so my question is, what/ if there is a difference between the two.

med office assistants have an administrative role... like in an 'office', but they have some medical knowledge in order to handle files, computer work, scheduling etc. Medical assistants help drs and nurses.

office assistants do mostly admin type things, where as medical assistant is more of a nursing role and involves more prac work.
