What Is Medical Assisting C.A.?
The medical field is one of the fastest growing industries in the nation. As more doctors open new offices or join established practices the need for well-trained assistants increases. Medical assistants are trusted with huge responsibilities, both administrative and clinical. A day’s work may have you scheduling appointments, preparing patients for examination, recording vital signs, arranging hospital admissions, handling laboratory specimens, sterilizing instruments, calling in prescriptions, drawing blood, filing insurance, removing sutures, taking electrocardiograms, and more. Certificate programs prepare you for entry-level employment.
Employment of medical assistants is projected to grow 29 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations.
In the state of Missouri, employees working in the medical assisting field earn a median annual wage of $32,480. Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics
