    Don,
    the NP must obtain a doctorate degree by 2015. Physical therapists now must have a doctorate degree to practice and receive a license. Is there anything on the horizon for certified medical assistants in the way of required education? Diane Albarella

    Hello Mr. Balasa:
    I have recently obtained my certification as a medical assistant and I have a medical background as a certified nursing assistant as well as medical billing. I would like to know if there is any age limits on being a medical assistant. I am in my early 50’s and my goal is to be an office manager. I know there is age discrimination out there in the world, but I know I would be an excellent asset to any medical office. Kindly reply and thank you.
