The job of the medical assistant [in German “Medizinische(r) Fachangestellte(r) (MFA)”] is a highly responsible one, which is why we expect a great deal from our apprentices and take our responsibility as trainers very seriously indeed. Our practice provides trainees with a mentor to support them. These are experienced medical assistants or nurses. In collaboration with the doctors, mentors accompany these young people throughout their three-year training period to ensure optimum training content in the medical, laboratory technology, organizational and administrative spheres. We encourage entrants to the profession and generally accept one apprentice a year. We are currently training two medical assistants.
