Making New Year's Resolutions? Career Change? Maybe in the Medical Field?
2015 has been an interesting year. With the New Year here, New Year’s resolutions are everywhere. Many people are vowing to lose weight, quit smoking, travel more or read more books. Consider this, how happy are you in your current job/position? When was the last time you were excited to go to work? If you are not currently doing something that brings you joy, then perhaps you should look into other career paths.
Trying something new can be scary, but it can be liberating and ultimately the best thing you do for yourself. The Medical field always seems like one of the most challenging fields to get into, but it doesn’t have to be. What you really need to get started is the desire to help others, a high school diploma, and the right program to help you get you where you want to be.
Medical Assisting is a great first step into the Medical Field. Medical Assistants are the ones that are typically working in a physician’s office or an immediate care center. They are able to help their patients at the front office or in the clinic as well. Some of the duties they are able to do include: drawing blood, taking vitals, removing sutures/stitches/stapes, running labs, performing blood and urine analysis, and even assisting in small surgical procedures.
MedQuest College has an amazing college that trains students in 10 months to be CPR certified and go through their Compressive Medical Assisting Program. They only accept eight students maximum per class start and are 70% hands-on training. So in 10 short months (4 days a week, for 4 hours a day), you too can start the New Year off right with the training for a New Career.
