Why Become a Clinical & Administrative Medical Assistant?
Nowadays, every clinic requires medical assistants. They have the responsibility to look after the administrative matters while looking after the health of the patients. Both clinical and medical responsibilities fall on their shoulder. Clinical & Administrative Medical Assistants are not only required by clinics, but the demand for such experts has increased in every segment of the healthcare field. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, rising demand for medical assistants is expected to increase by 29% between the next decade. The reason for the higher-than average job projection, and boost in demand, is due to the increase population of senior citizens, along with longer life-spans.
