Medical Assisting

As medical technology continues to advance, doctors are increasingly relying on medical assistants to help with various patient care needs. Most medical assistants work in the offices of physicians while others work in public and private hospitals, inpatient and outpatient facilities, the offices of other health practitioners such as chiropractors and optometrists, and in nursing and residential care facilities.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of medical assistants is projected to grow much faster than average nationally, which ranks medical assistants among the fastest growing occupations over the 2008-2018 decade, and job prospects for skilled medical assistants should be excellent.
