In this article, I will be briefing out a discussion held between my roommate and his friend.
One fine evening, my friend and me was exploring shelves of a medical store; looking a medicine for acnes (a skin disease that results in pustules (pimples). Suddenly a dude comes to him from somewhere in his white apron and gave him a pack of 10 tetracycline tablets. First time ever, I saw my friend shocked as if he saw a rattlesnake. On seeing, a person who was not so brilliant with studies in that too in white apron simply left us in the tsunami of question. Somehow, the discussion begun as follows:
My friend: Holy cow, how you became a doctor.
His friend: I am not a doctor; I am a medical assistant, quite different from being doctor.
My friend: Tell me the secret and please do not you dare to give me a cock and bull story on this.
His friend: Come on, I will not say that a little birdie told me this or someone asked me to mum’s the word. There is no secret; I just decided to join a medical assistant training program instead of sitting on the fence like you.
My friend: Now what is this program? Spit out the thing man.
His friend: You are such a doubting Thomas, a skeptic who needs evidence for everything to believe. I enrolled myself in a full time training program as soon as I finished my high school and stayed in the classrooms of that vocational training school for nearly 1.5 years. I learnt everything related to medical assistant’s profession such as anatomy, computer and bookkeeping skills, insurance processing and accounting. Although I do not perform medical duties, yet I learnt laboratory testing, because this will be helping me with my specialization. My work is more of administrative and I assure the administrative smoothness in the place I work. Currently, I am working as locum tenens and earning $13-$14 per hour, but soon will be going on a good payroll.
My friend: That is awesome man, so I better be get going and surfing this medical assistant training program. Thanks though dude!
