About Our Allied Health Programs
Medical assistants employment is anticipated to increase by 16 percent through 2031 according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
Health Care Outlook
The health care 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 population, the baby boomer generation, continues to reach retirement age and beyond, the need for health care 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 that are critical to the everyday functions of hospitals, physician’s offices and other health care 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 15 percent through 2030 relative to 2020, according to the Occupational Information Network (O*NET).
