Medical assistants work in a variety of clinics across Nebraska Medicine and are responsible for escorting patients to exam rooms, taking vitals and giving injections. MAs are an integral part of our team and have an opportunity to interact with a variety of patients and health care providers. They should demonstrate our organizational values: innovation, teamwork, accountability, excellence, courage and healing.
