What can I do to get a Job as a Receptionist in a Medical Office?

I have 3 years experience at the same company as an Admin Assistant/Receptionist. I really enjoy the work, but for some reason I really wanna work in a Medical Office.

See if your local junior college has a course in medical terminology and medical billing. That and your other experience in the office field should be enough to get you a chance.
