Question by kimberly_stricklin: I am thinking about a job as a medical assistant, should I go back to school?
I went to Austin Community College for a block-time program in Office Occupations thinking that will help me get a job, but it didn’t turn out that way, I was looking into the medical field as a medical tranpristionst, I don’t think that is a good idea to work at home, so I am going to look into this medical assistant career.
Answer by abhaya
medical assistants get to do all the dirty work in nursing hmes and hospitals. If you like cleaning bedpans and heavy lifting it is your dream job!! If not then you may want to consider a different road to travel. I wa a medical assistant for many years working with disabled kids. I loved my job but I am now 45 and need knee replacements and I have a bad back because of all the lifting so b carefull.
