Healthcare workers are essential, and medical assistants are vital to our healthcare system. Medical assistants work directly with both patients and other healthcare workers, providing critical support and assistance to nurses, physicians, and doctors. As a medical assistant you may work in doctor’s offices, hospitals, medical clinics, nursing homes, and other healthcare settings. These important healthcare workers are in high demand across the country, and the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics projects this field will continue to grow over the 2020 – 2030 decade at an impressive rate of 18% annually. In this growing field, there are incredible opportunities for employment.
