I was interested in finding out about medical field jobs in the area. I am a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant and my girlfriend is in medical billing. I am currently on a 3 month travel assignment in Pensacola ending in early March. At the completion of this assignment i'm looking to relocate to a permanent position somewhere in Florida. What medical facilities are in the area, and what are the prospects of securing employment? I would appreciate any info you may have.

hhhuuuuppp.....I was going to go to the community college in Bradenton to become an OTA. I am a 56 yr old Dental Assistant and figured that perhaps I should move from the Dental because of my age. Maybe they like "older" Dental Assistants in Florida cause here in New Mexico they sure do not.
