Rhonda in Woodhaven, New York said: 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 agree with you how did you finally find a place to do your externhip.I am stuggling with this issue right now.

Hi there, Congratulations on getting your Medical Assistant. If your still looking for a place to do your internship at, try a free clinic that help the less fortunate. It's a great place to get experience, and if that doesn't work go to a Doctor's office and have a talk with them to see if they would be able to use you, and your skills you acquired in school. Be honest with them, and make a powerful resume, and add your life skills. You never know you just might get that job you are seeking. I hoped this has helped in any way. Good luck in your journey.

lol they are by far the most illiterate persons in the medical field! how can you have experience if you are looking to do your externship? your experience comes from your externship so they dont know what the heck they doing or they are just plain stupid

And Be very careful of externships, I was recently placed in one and 3 weeks into it at another location some girl in the externship from my school "stole money" and we all lost the opportunity and the 2 positions that were open for hire! idiot people today being pushed thru schools at the greed of money taking these people haven no life skills and no morals and I am hearing it from so many people around the country! Plus with out externship they all ask did you try volunteering I said yes and all it is is free, slavey to hospitals and independant places that have no job opportunities or not giving references to you! its all BS

Hi Susanne, Can I ask you where you trained? I am thinking of going into an MA program and I don't know if I should get an associates or just the 8mth program. I am on the older side.....41, so will probably choose the shorter program. How old were the average students? Is it a field that is ok for a mature person to go in to? BTW I read somewhere that Texas med Clinics have externship programs. So you have to find your own? Good luck and I would appreciate any info!!

Hi "confused",

it doesn't matter howold you are, it is always good to go after your dreams and goals ! So, good for you ! Almost every college offers MA programs either online or ground campus. The students ages range from 18 to 50, so you see the age really doesn't matter.Medical field is a fast growing business and always needed, so yes I would say it is a good field to go in. Not to forget you always be able to further your education to get higher training and degree. Some colleges offer Externship sites andsome don't, so if you really thinking of entering a MA program make sure you choose a college that offers externship sites instead of having the stress to search on your own. Good luck to you !

Angela in Clinton Township, Michigan

32 months ago

Linda in Royal Oak, Michigan said: 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?

I was just reading your post and was curious if you had ever found a good externship in our area? I live in Clinton Twp and I'm starting to panic because I never realized this would be this difficult! I will be needing to start my externship in three months for Medical Assistant! If you have any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!!

Angela,

yes it can get really frustrating not finding an Externship, I talked to other colleges and asked the mif they provide externship sites for their students and they said yes. I guess I choose the wrong college to do my MA program. I called clinics, offices, hospitals and it is just hard to find one because you want to be fast, especiallly like Linda said externships fill in fast....Good Luck to you that you find one soon !!!!

I am also a student looking for externship in the evening. I am a student of Everest Institute. I work full time during the day and not working is not an option for me. If I do not complete the hours needed to complete this course I do not graduate. I live in P.G county and would appreciate any suggestions. It would be a shame to let a few hours come in between my promising future for me and my children. Very frustrating!

Why don't you ask them yourself. You not suppose to come on a forum such as this one and ask for help on this forum. You need to find your own internship with the help career councilor at your school. You don't know who's who out here on the internet...

Sorry about the typo. It was late last night when I posted this reply. I would strongly recommend that you talk to your career counselor at your school. You will not find what you're looking for, and yes I can spell.

I tell my Medical Assistant students to knock on doors and call the facilities where they want to do their externship. The more places you call, the better your chances of getting in as an extern. I have had several students receive paying position offers prior to completing externship/class/certification because of their initiative in calling and finding locations. How many? 100+ facilities is a good start.
