Job Outlook

According to the U.S. Department of Labor –
Bureau of Labor Statistics

Employment of medical assistants is
expected to growth faster than the average
for all occupations through the year 2010 as
the health services industry expands
because of technological advances in
medicine, and a growing and aging
population. It is one of the fastest growing
occupations.


Nature of the Work

administrative duties. They answer
telephones, greet patients, update and file
patient medical records, fill out insurance
forms, handle correspondence, schedule
appointments, arrange for hospital
admission and laboratory services, and
handle billing and bookkeeping. Medical

and clinical tasks to keep the offices and
clinics of physicians, podiatrists,
chiropractors, and optometrists running
smoothly

Phlebotomy Techician

What Does a Phlebotomist Do?

A phlebotomist is a healthcare
professional who is trained to draw
blood from a patient in a safe and
sanitary manner. Phlebotomists may
draw blood samples for tests or collect
blood donations, depending on where
the phlebotomist works. Often,
phlebotomists work in a clinic laboratory
with other clinical laboratory
technologists who screen and test the
samples that are collected.

Occupational Outlook for Phlebotomists:

Employment opportunities for
phlebotomists are expected to be good
as the demand for skilled laboratory
personnel increases. The market is
expected to increase 10%-20% over the
next decade. The rapidly growing older
population will be a major reason for this
growth, since older people tend to have
more medical problems that will require
lab work. The fastest growth in this field
is expected in independent medical
laboratories because hospitals continue
to send a greater amount of their lab
work to outside facilities.
EKG Technician

EKG technicians play an important role
in helping medical doctors do their job
by providing them with a special EKG
printout that is interpreted by the
physicians. The  heart  produces these
electrical impulses with much more of a
“charge.” This charge can be measured
with the help of the electrodes and will
help physicians treat their patients.

JOB OUTLOOK

As our population continues to live
longer, older people have a higher rate
of heart problems, so employment of
cardiovascular technologists and
technicians is expected to grow faster
than the average for all occupations
through the year 2012.
MEDICAL
OFFICE
ADMINISTRATION

Nature of the work

As the reliance on
technology continues to
expand in offices, the role
of the office professional
has greatly evolved. Office
automation and
organizational restructuring
have led secretaries and
Medical  administrative
assistants to assume
responsibilities once
reserved for managerial
and professional staff. In
spite of these changes,
however, the core
responsibilities for Medical
office admins have
remained much the same:
Performing and
coordinating an office’s
administrative activities and
storing, retrieving, and
integrating information for
dissemination to staff and
clients.

Job outlook

The medical office clerk
career has a positive job
outlook.The need for
medical office clerks is
expected to increase. Office
clerks who are dependable
and show initiative may
advance to an office
manager position, or into a
teaching position.
