AMT celebrates Medical Assistants Recognition Week with the theme "Medical Assistants:Caring and Courageous." AMT's RMA members, their employers and schools should take pride in their hard work and efforts throughout the year but especially during this week.
Day in and day out, year after year, there is a group of dedicated professionals serving on the frontlines of health care. However, one week out of each year is named in appreciation of their contributions: Medical Assistants Recognition Week (MARWeek), which takes place the third week in October. This important event acknowledges medical assisting’s vital role in health care while raising awareness of the profession.
"Medical assistants provide an invaluable service to both the patient and the healthcare providers in the community. We recognize their dedication to the profession and to the industry."
- Christopher A. Damon, JD, Executive Director, American Medical Technologists
