Medical Assistant

Medical Assistant

If you can stay organized when work is pulling you four different ways at once, you would make a perfect medical assistant. As a medical assistant you will work in a doctor's office or hospital where you will manage files, coordinate schedules, handle the bookkeeping, aide doctors in routine exams, and pretty much do everything that needs doing. Sounds a bit stressful? You can take charge and manage it like no one else.

Some doctors may hire you without certification, but it is recommended that you have the training that certification gives you. You can earn your medical assistant certification in one year at a trade school or community college. With a second year at school you will earn your associate's degree and have more opportunities for promotion.
