About Our Allied Health Programs
Medical assistant's employment is anticipated to increase by 14 percent through 2032 according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
The healthcare industry now employs more people than any other industry in America. This is a fact that is unlikely to change any time in the near future. As a large portion of the baby boomer generation population continues to reach retirement age and beyond, the need for healthcare will continue to rise. An influx of patients will not only be good for doctors. The increase in care will also mean an uptick in employment for allied health positions critical to the everyday functions of hospitals, physician’s offices and other healthcare facilities. Positions like medical assistants and medical office staff are needed to help doctors and nurse practitioners maintain their standard of care when faced with the uptick in patient visits.
Medical assistants perform a variety of patient care and administrative tasks, helping physicians and nurses with whatever they need for the practice to run smoothly. Employment of medical assistants is projected to increase over 9 percent through 2032 relative to 2022, according to the Occupational Information Network (O*NET).
