Market for surgical assistants

Hello everyone I am someone who is new to health care and I was wondering how the job market is for surgical first assistants.

I have done some research into schools. Some of them range from community colleges to masters programs. It really seems to vary. I am still largely undecided as to what I want to do in healthcare and being a first assist seems like an interesting job where the prerequisites for entry arenít too steep (such as MD). It seems like a career where someone can get their feet wet assisting surgeons with a wide variety of procedures.

What is the market like for travel assignments? Is it in demand across all 50 states? What are the advancement opportunities if one was to specialize in CT surgery or neuro?

Finally what about schools? Mayo Clinic and Eastern Virginia come to mind as possible training grounds.

Thanks

I know if I had no military experience and wanted information about civilian health care careers, the first place I'd look for answers would be on a Special Operations message board.....
