Here is a recent question I received,

"Hey Steve, my name is Perry Moore from Mississippi and I am only 20 years old and I am already a Certified Medical Assistant. I wanted to go back to school this year to get a head start for the PTA program that becomes open next year. I am very confident in my abilities to be able to get into the program and I see myself doing this for a very long time because it is a very fascinating field to work in. I was read the qualifiers and all of them are something that I have. So I believe that’s another wonderful reason that I would go while I am still young back to school and pursue my dream and career job as a Physical Therapist Assistant."

I think it is great when allied health professionals make lateral moves and I always encourage anyone to do what they think will bring them more satisfaction in their careers.
