Job Outlook and Salary For Medical Assistants

A huge growth in employment is projected for Medical Assistants. The Bureau of Labor Statistics site states there will be a 23% growth between now and 2024. This is much faster than most other occupations. A couple factors driving this huge employment increase for medical assistants are the aging of the baby-boomers, and expanding physician practices to accommodate their patient-base. Because there is so much growth within doctor’s offices, hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare facilities, medical assistants are necessary to keep the administrative and clinical aspects running smoothly.

Medical assistants, on average, earn $30,590 annually. The highest 10% will make an annual salary of $43,880, and those new to the field will earn $22,040. Keep in mind, these numbers are the national average but factors such as geographic location, type of practice, and amount of experience can make those salaries look different across the nation.
