Certificate or Associates degree in Medical Administrative Assistant? Do you think it matters to get a job?
To get a job in this field do you think you need the extra years or just 3 months? I know an associates degree is better but in this field and line of work do you think it matters?

You may want to look at the MAA jobs in your area and see what they are requiring, an AS or Cert. Most places either is fine there is no real difference in the actual education, just the paper. Where I'm located it doesn't matter their looked upon as equal. HR Manager
