Re: medical assistant training

Please be aware that there aren't supposed to be too many jobs for the MA (or medical biller or coder) despite what those private overpriced for-profit schools proclaim. There are just too many schools offering the program(s) without the job vacancies. If still interested in training, please consider the more affordable county vo-tech school or community college as long as the program is accredited within the industry. Best of luck in whatever path you choose.

Re: medical assistant training

Amen! I just spent 9 months of my life and $12,000 on Medical Assisting school and did my internship at a Family practice for 2 months, was hired on temporary for another 3 months. I have been unemployed for almost 3 months now and can't find a job as a Medical Assistant even though I am registered. Everyone wants one to two years of experience before they will even interview you. I'm screwed!

Re: medical assistant training

I'm sorry that you're having such a difficult time finding a job as a medical assistant. Unfortunately, that seems to be the consensus in the field. Perhaps you can look for related types of jobs such as medical records ("health information") clerk, receptionist, radiology file clerk or such. Perhaps you can also apply to some temporary job agencies if even for any job but perhaps similar ones to the field. It can help one's resume to not have too many gaps, know what I mean.
