Medical assistant jobs

Can an American who speaks English find a medical assistant job in the DR?

w/o a residency prob not

Without residency Oscar is correct, it's very difficult.

The other question is do you also speak Spanish? If not then even with a cedula it won't be easy. 

Last point - you understand that this is a low paid position?  Maybe pays 300 to 400 US a month!

Hi there, I work in medical tourism here. If you aren't fully bilingual it would be impossible to work within the field.

Feel free to message me.

Thanks for the info—I want to live in the DR, but I am fluent in Spanish & retired. I was asking for my daughter who is an MA in the US (low paid here too & high cost of living). I thought maybe she could come live with me & work—but she's forgotten all her spanish

She would pick it up quickly I bet!

As others have said, she would need to speak fluent Spanish, have residency (maybe as your dependent?), and accept that she'd make maybe a quarter of what she could earn in the US. If she's living with you and doesn't have housing expenses, that income might work.

@Ykr716 hey I'm fully bilingual but I don't know where to go for a medical assistant job and I don't know what's the right Pay. Can u help me with that?  Jalbu3z on IG THANKS

Welcome to the forums.  Do you have residency?  If not it's impossible to get work legally

If you do, then head to hospitals clinics and individual doctors offices.


@Ykr716 hi. Where do you work?. I am a 3rd year medical student and I wanted a medical related job in LA romana or any place with tourism in the area. Am also full trilingual

@eve the other poster is in Santo Domingo area.

Do you wish to stay in La Romana area?
