What are the pros and cons of becoming a Medical Assistant?
1. I am thinking about getting certified as a Medical Assistant in order to put myself through further schooling. Would this be possible? 2. How much does it cost to take the classes? 3. What kind of opportunities are offered internationally for this job? 4. Are there any options for promotion or salary upgrade as a Medical Assistant? 5. What are the hours like? 6. Anything else I should consider? Thanks. Please note I am talking about medical assisting, not nurse's assistants.
