If you love people and enjoy taking care of them, here is some good news for you:

Is Medical Assisting the Right Career Path For You?
You may enjoy this type of work if you are social, empathetic, and friendly. You were a kid who liked to play nurse, doctor, or medic. Maybe you practiced medicine on your pet dog or cat or maybe you bandaged up your dolls, GI Joes or superheroes.
Caring for others and accuracy is very important to you. Helping folks be healthy is your passion. If so, then this may be the career for you.
