In every career, proper training and education are paramount.
A diploma or certificate of completion relays a message to an employer: you are trainable. Now more than ever, the medical field faces a surge in open positions moving a certified medical assistant up the priority ladder. Peloton offers the training necessary for a job industry growing faster than expected.
According to the Texas Labor Market Information website, the medical assistant field will continue to rise and over the next ten years, we will see a growth of almost 30%. In the DFW area alone, close to 1,000 jobs have yet to be filled.https://texaslmi.com/LMIbyCategory/Projections
Three benefits from this field that outweigh the rest:
A medical assistant no longer focuses on just the filing. Along with the administrative side, MAs are now assisting with patient care duties making them an essential member of a doctor’s staff.
With round-the-clock care on the rise and private practices continuing to open, the flexibility in schedules provides a perk other fields lack.
What’s more appealing than the idea of advancement? The stepping stones for advancement include knowledge of what happens behind the scenes and the hands-on experience, the ability to specialize by working in fields of interest such as obstetrics, dermatology, and pediatrics, and continuing education through certifications, training, and degree plans.
