On Average How Much Does A Medical Assistant Make an hour?
Hi, I am trying to look into a career within the healthcare field. I am a volunteer at a local ambulance company and going for my EMT. I have an interview this week for a Sterile Processing Technician at the local hospital. Looking online once certified pay is about $16-$18 an hour. I am interested in going to college for Physician Assistant Studies. Medical Assistant looks like a great headway into that field. If I do get the job as a Sterile Processing Tech; I was thinking of moving on towards either Medical Assistant or Advanced EMT. I was wondering what a Medical Assistant makes normally an hour. However, I wouldn’t want to go backwards on the pay scale. Appreciate the response.

Pay can vary depending on which part of the country you live in, the size of the town and the size of the employer. But on average, most MAs make around $10-15, I have rarely heard of an MA making more than $16
