Question: Which Medical Assistant is Better?

Every year thousands of new and experienced medical assistants applying for jobs are asked to show potential employers reliable documentation of their education, training, knowledge and skills, despite the fact that not every highly skilled and qualified medical assistant is always certified.

Most employers now expect 1-3 years job experience and certifications, or else they are hesitant to hire. However, does certification automatically mean that one medical assistant is better than another? For instance, is a recent graduate from a medical assistant school with certification better qualified than an applicant who received his/her medical assisting and first aid training in the Military and has worked in the health care field for many consecutive years without ever getting certified?

Please comment! Which medical assistant do YOU think is better? To learn more about the medical assisting career please visit Medical Assistant NET on the Web.

Hello Danni,

My name is Jackie and I am a writer for We are working on building up the site to be a valuable and comprehensive resource for people who want to go back to school and find careers that reflect their passions and skills.

I am working on an article about specific career fields and I found your blog, Medical Assistant Net Blog, while researching medical assistant jobs. I was wondering if you would be able to answer a few quick questions about your work and educational background, experience, and career path in this area to help with the article?

We can conduct the short interview either by phone or e-mail, depending on which is more convenient for you. Over the phone, it should only take about 10 minutes of your time. My email address is if you prefer to answer the interview questions at your leisure.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Thanking You,
Jackie Foster
