    This article was very helpful, as I am trying to get my externship placement in a Chiropractor’s office. In five weeks, I will have finished all my classes for a Medical Assistant, and then will do my externship and take my RMA. Is it possible that I have enough training to be a Chiroptractic Medical Assistant?
