Medical Assistant Job Outlook


Employment of medical assistants is projected to grow 23 percent from 2018 to 2028, much faster than the 5% average growth projected for all occupations. This equates to approximately 155,000 new medical assistant positions from 2018 to 2028. The growth of the aging baby-boom population will continue to increase demand for preventive medical services, which are often provided by physicians. As a result, physicians will hire more assistants to perform routine administrative and clinical duties, allowing the physicians to see more patients.



An increasing number of group practices, clinics, and other healthcare facilities will also need support workers, particularly medical assistants, to complete both administrative and clinical duties. Medical assistants work mostly in primary care, a steadily growing sector of the healthcare industry.

Medical assistants are expected to have good job prospects; however, those who earn certification and have familiarity with electronic health records (EHRs) may have better job prospects.
