which is better salary- wise, and which one would i have a better chance of finding a job at? i’m looking specifically for information based on how it is with the jobs in the New York metropolitan area (Long Island, 5 boroughs, and where else, etc), but even if ur not from ny and u dont know anything about the job situation in this area i would still like your input on this topic (from wherever your from).

I’d say regular medical, like a physicians assistant would be a good choice. The medical field in general has a big shortage, so you should be able to find work, and from what I understand the salary of a physician’s assistant isn’t too shabby. I believe the median salary is around $ 82,000, I believe it also requires a master’s degree.
A regular medical assistant usually does office work, and that median salary is around $ 28,000.
