Overview

Medical assistants are the most common position in medical practice. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job market for medical assistants will grow 16% through 2031, with 123,000 job openings projected each year. A recent survey found that if a medical practice recently added a staff position, the top position added was a medical assistant. That same survey reported that 77% of medical practices have at least one medical assistant on staff. For physicians, clinical medical assistants help manage the increasing complexities of practice management and patient care.

In this online medical assistant certification program, you will learn a broad range of skills that make medical assistants versatile and valuable, including the importance of certified clinical medical assistants as healthcare team members.
