Students are instructed on the clinical skills needed to work in medical doctors’ offices, HMOs, clinics and at hospitals with in-patients and in exam rooms.

The U.S. Department of Labor reports the Medical Assisting employment is expected to grow by 29% from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations.

Demand will stem from physicians hiring more medical assistants to do routine administrative and clinical duties so that physicians can see more patients.
