Well, let's think about it this way: Are you an efficient multitasker who works well with people? Want to use your organizational skills within the fast-paced environment of a medical facility, where you could be handling everything from managing the day-to-day operations of a doctors office, to interacting and helping with patients?
Medical assistant training that leads to desired diplomas and degrees requires one or two years of training in order to be eligible for the medical assistant certification exam upon successful graduation.
There are distance programs available, however there is a requirement to dedicate a year to full time training, which will likely be a lost year of income for you: you will need to factor that in with the tuition to determine your overall financial obligation.
