I am a medical assistant
I have an associates degree in science
I make just shy of 30k a year
I work weird shifts, since I work on the office side i make up my own shifts based on when patients are scheduled. I only work m-f anywhere from 7-12 hrs. When I hit forty i go home unless something urgent needs attention.
I do everything from scheduling appointments to patient education. I love it, i am however planning to go back to school next year with the ultimate goal of becoming a physicians assistant.
