The latest conversations about Healthcare
Hi all, my medical assistant job doesn’t pay well, but I can’t really leave at the moment because I’m in the process of applying to PA school. I know any other job I find won’t be as flexible as this one, so I just want to stick it out until I hopefully get accepted. (Still am retaking some classes, etc, so I need that flexibility). Does anyone have any ideas of what I can do to make some extra money on the side?
Certified Medical Assistant
I recently discovered Certified Surgical Technologist. It seems to be what I’m looking for in terms of a career (ability to work 3x12s, little patient interaction). I am used to standing on my feet all day so this I am not concerned about. If you are a CST what do you like about it? What don’t you like about it?

Benefits for employees are great, 403b match, discounts perks. Competitive pay, many learning opportunities. Coworkers always offering to help if needed
A little difficult to get PTO, favoritism with specific staff which makes it difficult to get promoted.
