De anza offers classes so you can get your associates for medical assistant or they also have the option to just get your certificate. I’m not sure which path to take yet and wonder the difference.

What is the best way to get a medical assisting internship?

I'm a high school senior who just earned her CCMA (certified clinical medical assistant) through my school's technical certification program. I'm also BLS certified. I'm trying to find clinics to shadow and assist, but I'm not sure how to contact clinics, nor do I know which clinics are most likely to consider giving me an opportunity. Specifically, I'd like to intern at a surgery center, women's health center, or pediatric clinic. I just moved, so I don't have any connections to the area, and I am no longer in a school program, which makes it more challenging. What is the best way to go about seeking this internship as a high school student?
