Do you enjoy working with people? Want to make a difference in people's lives? Consider a career as a medical assistant. As you aid doctors in helping patients, you may discover it's the most exciting, fulfilling job you've ever had. There are many opportunities in this field, including home health care, pediatric medicine, and just about any medical specialty you can think of. The aging population of the U-S has increased the demand for medical care, and much of this gap is being filled by medical assistants. Most of these professionals receive their training from a technical program, and the good news is the program can often be completed in less than two years. In addition to classes on medical care, you'll learn administrative skills, and probably receive some clinical training in a hospital or doctor's office. Worried about the cost? Federal, state, and private scholarships, loans, and grants may be available to help pay for your training. If you're considering a career change, then you'll be glad to know that many schools also offer evening or weekend classes to train you in this rewarding career field.
