Due to their training in pharmacology, laboratory procedures, medical law, patient care, and the health sciences, Medical Assistants are capable of filling a diverse range of roles in a health care facility.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, roughly 60% of medical assistants work in doctor’s offices. Another 14% work in public and/or private hospitals. And 11% of medical assistants work in offices of health care practitioners (e.g. podiatrists, optometrists, et al.).

The remaining medical assistants chose to work in outpatient care facilities, local government agencies, laboratories, nursing care centers, and educational services.
