Estelle’s Answer

Medical assistant programs are usually 2 year programs out of high school, but you can finish sooner if you go full time. They often offer online classes and flexible hours for people working while in school. Being a medical assistant is a great job with lots of opportunity to move up.

"There are many colleges, universities, and technical schools that offer medical assistant training programs. Depending upon your preferences, you may choose to earn a certificate or diploma in as little as 9-12 months, or an associate’s degree in 18-24 months. These programs typically include classroom and laboratory training as well as an externship assignment."
