First of all, let me say that this is a wonderful site!!!!! I have gained so much important information. Here is my question: what does primary care include? OB/GYN? Peds? Geriatrics? Internal? Also, I'm starting my undergraduate work this fall at University of Missouri, Columbia. I am considering getting a job in a doctor's office as a medical assistant. Do any of you know if a job such as this would give me good experience in the medical field? I want a job (paid or volunteer) that will be a learning experience. Also, what type of training does one need to become a medical assistant? Thanks for any input.
