How can I become a Medical Assistant?
I see ads all of the time for schools to become a medical assistant. What are the basic responsibilities of a medical assistant? What kind of training is involved? How long does it take to become one?

There are alot of different programs, just make sure you pick a state certified one. You can find a school that you can either go during the day or at night. It usually takes a year to be a MA. Why not go another 6 months and be a LPN with much better pay. Good Luck:)
