A Day in the Life of a Medical Assistant

Were you ever given a group project in school but found you were the only one doing all the work? Tasks are easier when you have someone you can count on, whether it be a friend, family member, or coworker. The same holds true for the medical field. As experienced and knowledgeable as doctors and surgeons are, they can't run their practices by themselves. That's where medical assistants like me come in.

A Day in the Life of an Addiction Counselor

How do you cope with stressful situations? Taking a break, exercising, or watching an episode of your favorite show could be helpful.

If you want to live without regret, take the “Rocking Chair Test.” Pretend you are sitting on the front porch, watching the sunset, and looking back on your life.

You started college to train for it, but you had to quit for one reason or another. Maybe you had kids that required your full attention. Maybe you couldn't afford tuition, so you kept working jobs you did not enjoy.

Our veterinary technician instructors are completing the Fear Free certification program, if they have not done so already.
