Is this the right career for you?
Becoming a Medical Assistant, with an education from our school in Columbus Ohio, is a sensible choice for those who want to start a healthcare career without undergoing the rigorous clinical training of a nurse or the years-long process of medical school. MAs enjoy the advantage of having an entry-level position that opens the door to various opportunities and career paths within the ever-evolving medical industry.
By managing the administrative tasks and performing essential lab skills in a physician’s office, hospital, or other healthcare facility, Medical Assistants have the distinct role of supporting both doctors and patients, a uniquely rewarding position.
According to a study by Indeed, MAs working in the United States can expect to earn an average of $39,000 per year. Common benefits of the job include tuition reimbursement, flexible scheduling, and ample opportunity for advancement.
