Medical Assistants are in demand!

There is currently a huge demand for medical assistants! Medical assistants are a vital part of a medical consultation; they record information about the patient, measure vitals, give injections, and many more tasks. Medical assistants are responsible for taking patient information, and are only allowed to share this information with the other medical staff that is treating the patient. They provide both entry-level clinical and administrative job skills necessary to work in medical clinics, medical centers, or specialized care centers. They prepare patients for examination, take vital signs, and record medical histories. They will also set up the examination room, give immunizations, take EKGs, and perform various lab tests.

 

Currently, medical assistants are earning an average of $41,000 a year, making it 7% higher than the nationwide average. With an expected growth of about 23% in the next 10 years, according to the US Department of Labor, this makes it one of the fastest growing medical jobs right next to nursing.
