Medical Assistant Outlook Bright

Posted in Medical Careers by Alex on 22 May 2012

As health care providers scramble to cut costs and the future of health care remains murky, one fact has become clear: Medical Assistant jobs continue to grow, even in this stagnant economy.

Both the United States Department of Labor and the Illinois Department of Employment expect higher than average job growth in the Medical Assistant sector through 2018. Moreover, health care providers are utilizing medical assistants in areas that were typically dominated by nurses.

Experts agree that the flexibility of a medical assistant in being able to work in a wide range of medical environments, from direct patient care to administrative roles, provides the kind of flexibility that will be in demand in the turbulent health care industry.

SOLEX College has recognized the soaring need for quality Medical Assistants and looks to provide the same top notch education in medical assistance as it provides across other disciplines.
