I learned a lot in these past four weeks about the career I am going for and what it takes to get there. I learned about the qualifications and education that I need to become a medical assistant. I also learned what the responsibilities are in a medical assistant field. I am going to do everything it takes to make sure I put my all into it to become the best medical assistant I can be. The medical assistant term is between a receptionist and nurse and will be doing task that includes everything that is basic.
1) Studying for certification exam. 2) Working in a doctor’s office as part of training. ) Learning the medical vocabulary works and medical terms. 4) Practicing giving shots to patients.
I learned that the medical assistant have important meetings every day that are mandatory because they have important discussions about important cases that they may come across or when they have new equipment that comes in. They also have training classes for new equipment because they will be using them.
There are specific skills in this profession that I will be doing like. 1) Answering the telephones. 2) Making appointment for patients and new members. ) Setting up all examination rooms for the next patients. 4) Checking the patient’s height, weight, and temperature. I will be in contact with other people in this field like a medical office manager who would be in charge of making schedules for employees and ordering medical supplies as needed. They also deal with patients financial problems. The next person that I will also be in contact with is a health information technology they also answer phone calls and deal with patient’s medical records by making sure that all the information is filled out in the appropriate fields and that the records are in order.
They also make sure that the patient insurance is verified accordantly and that all co-payments are up to date. To become a medical assistant you would need a high school diploma or certificate. Most programs have a two year program which will allow you to get an associate degree. Some jobs prefer to hire people who are either certified or accredited there are four programs that can help you get accredits for certification for medical assistant. 1) Certified medical assistant at the American associate of medical assistant. 2) Registered medical assistant at the American medical technologist. ) National certified medical assistant at the national center for competency testing. The medical assistant field is the most growing occupation in years from 2008 to 2018. After you get certified it is easy to find a job in this field. Some doctors like to hire people who are just coming out of school with incentive and benefits. My career goal is to graduate on time and work at a hospital in New York City. I want to go back to school and get a BS in health science. because I want to further my career in a health care field.
I want to buy me a nice house in New York City that the bank is foreclosing. I also want to buy a car and learn how to drive. My goal is to make sure that I do everything in my power to succeed in everything I am trying to do. My goals are for me and my son because I want to show him with a good education that he can have a good career for the rest of his life. Because now and days it’s really kind of hard to make it without a career and a degree in life. I want to go back to school again in get my masters of health science. My goal is to get all three degree before I turn 39 years old.
I want to be the first out of my sisters and brothers to have three degrees in the same field. I want to show my nieces and nephews that they can do anything if their minds to it. It took me about five years before I decided to go back to school to get a degree and since I been going for the last four weeks it’s been great and I know at the end of these two years I know I will have a wonderful future to look forward to a better life for me and my son because without him I probably will still be procrastinating about going back to school.
In five years from now I see myself back in New York City working at the same hospital as my mother in law which would be our lady of mercy. My son would be in private school and I will be finishing up getting my BS in health science and getting ready to graduate. After I graduate and get my BS in health science I would be working on my masters of health science. This will mean I will be in school for two more years. I should have the house I wanted to buy from the bank. I should also be driving the car I always wanted and enjoying the career I have chosen.
I know I would be taking my mother on vacation trips and helping my son with his homework. I would be looking at my life and being proud of myself that I accomplished something great and now I will be living the life of a career that I made for myself. I would be motivating my nieces and nephews to do the same thing and telling them to stay in school and get a career. I know my mother would be proud of me because I am doing good and providing for my son with everything in life.
I want my son to follow in my footsteps and show him what great things can happen in life if you put your heart and soul in it. I want to prove to some of my family members who didn’t believe in me that I made it. I became something on my own without their help getting there. I would be happy where I’m at because it some years to get here and nobody can take that away from me. The hard work I put in to this to get me where I am at. This I will be doing in about five years from now and many more years ahead.
