I will also be discussing how I as becoming a Medical Assistant will interact with the 3 other professions. I will also be reviewing how I can better myself to interact with the other healthcare professionals on a daily basis.

My mom always told me “Leave work at work, and leave home at home” don’t mix the two cause it can be way to stressful at times if you do. I have always tried to follow this motto by her. I look forward to becoming a Medical Assistant and can’t wait to finish school and get my career
