I am looking for any clinic or medical office that is willing to accept me to do my externship. I have had one interview and when that was over I was told to call the next day and he would let me know the time and place to report, when I did call him back his reply to me "Don't call me I will call you" why give me a positive response on the interview then you slap me in the face with a response like don't call I will call you.

i am a student at Kaplan college and I am about to start my externship and I keep hearing how hard it is to find a job and that we go into a world where the doctor and nurses rule the world and looks down on us and we are left to do the dirty work and that when we get out in the working world that we dont have the proper knowledge we need and to sell ourselves I feel if you have learned all it is we need to what do they want us to do i really say kiss my azz this program is full of shht and when I graduate i plan on going to school to be a surgical tech because the men in this field dont get their fair treatment.

My husband and I will be moving to San Antonio, TX by the first of the year due to his position in the Air Force. I'm just finishing the Medical Assisting program, however, my school requires me to start my externship by January 4, 2010, or they will drop me from the program. Please e-mail me if you have any good recomendations. Thank you!

I am going to my externship in a few months and Im looking for my externship in advance. The problem is I cant find an externship thats close to my house. The thing about that is I have to drive farther than my school location if I were to want to go to my externship. My house is 68 miles just a trip there.

Linda in Royal Oak, Michigan

53 months ago

I will be doing my externship in Medical Assisting around the end of September. I was told that if I wait for the school to arrange the externship, I may be waiting six months AFTER my classes have ended as there are not enough externships to allow all the students to get one through the school. I don't want to wait, I need to start working asap after my externship is over. Does anyone know of any facilities that take MA students for an externship in the metro Detroit area?

Hi Lynn, Your school should be helping you find a site to do your extermship. You also check the local free clinics in your area, the VA Hospital would be a good place to start. May even your family Doctor might be able to guide you in the right direction. I hope everything goes good for you and may God be with you.

Your school/institution is the one that sets up externships unless you have a specific company/physician in mind and can set this up. I graduated last year, and my school took care of everything and even gave me a choice on where I wanted to go, like a hospital vs a private physician. It seems to me you need to be talking to the head of your department at your school and stay on top of them, this is your future, don't just sit on your hands or you'll never get anywhere.

Did you ever find an externship? I live in Atlanta and have already received my diploma but I want to do an externship so I have a better chance finding a job and to get certified.

I'm in my last quarter at Gwinnett College. My instructor has sent me on 2 externship interviews, the last one was this morning. No luck yet. She is encouraging us to go out and find our own externships, but I have a problem with this, as I had to pay the school $1200 for the externship itself.

I graduate as a Medical Assistant in May of 2011.I am begining to do my searches now for an Externship that i not only can show my skills, but i can also grow from the experiences they have to offer. I am a very punctual, hard working, and a very good team player. If given the chance to work with you I'm positive you will not regret it. Although it is just an Externship i take it just as serious as if i was actually getting paid for it. I enjoy helping others that's why I am becoming a Medical Assistant. I thank you now for just taking the time out to read this and put myself into thought.

Sincerely,

Ana Galindez
