A Medical assistant resume should highlight the patient care and administrative skills as those are two major tasks that a medical assistant performs. Employers generally pay attention to your education, years of experience, medical assistant trainings you have undergone, medical assistant certifications you have taken, any other specialty trainings or skills you possess, so make sure all these details are present in your resume.
