Medical assistants don't generally work in hospitals. Usually they work in clinics (ie family or specialty doctors) or urgent cares, which are the closest you would get to a hospital. Some urgent cares are connected to hospitals too. If you work in a clinic, it's the usual 8-5 M-F, but for urgent cares, the shifts tend to be 12 hours. Some urgent cares might be 8-5 M-F too.

If you're interested in hospitals, then I'd probably considered working as a nursing assistant or volunteering!

Hello Jacqueline, I’m a medical assistant! Here in my state we use medical assistants in the hospitals. Most of us work normal 40 hour weeks. Monday-Friday 8-5pm. Urgent cares you can work three 12 hour shifts and be done for the week. Hope this helps!
