Medical Assistant Resume Examples


If you're a regular visitor to this site, you may recall that last year we published some advice on resumes called "9 Steps to Write that Perfect Medical Assistant Resume". It turned out to be a very popular article which resulted in many of you emailing us to ask for some example resumes.

I have finally found the time to provide some examples below - I may add more depending on the feedback you provide. The first two examples are:

  1. CMA with No Experience
  2. Experienced Medical Assistant

BTW - we also have some examples of Cover Letters to send with your Resume here.

CMA with No Experience

This is for you if you've never held a job as a Medical Assistant.

Just because you haven't been employed yet, doesn't mean you have no experience at all - as you will see below we will emphasize any Externships or Volunteer Experience you may have.
