Employment for clinical medical assistants is expected to grow 23% from 2014 to 2024 as reported by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics.† This is much faster than the average growth rate for other occupations. Clinical medical assistants continue to be in high demand as they become more relied upon as an important asset to the medical team and as physicians’ practices switch to electronic records. Electronic health records are changing the way clinical medical assistants chart and manage medical records. Another contributing factor to the growth of clinical medical assisting is the healthier living habits of the population, giving them a longer lifespan. The baby boomer generation is aging and their need for healthcare has spurred the need for additional healthcare professionals.
