If you’re thinking about becoming a medical assistant, the outlook is promising for positions that may become available in this decade. Many employers prefer to hire trained medical assistants. Hands-on training in the classroom includes clinical procedures, pharmacology, lab procedures and more.

•    Job growth looks promising between 2008 and 2018*
•    62 percent of medical assistants work in a physician’s office
•    Some medical assistants train on the job, while others enroll in a one- or two-year program

Other health care facilities that hire medical assistants include outpatient care centers, colleges, professional schools and surgical hospitals. Medical assistant training could be just what you need to get your career moving.

Your local market data likely differs from these statistics. Your own hard work, professionalism, experience, work attitude, local market and other factors will impact your personal employment opportunities and pay.
