You can’t deny the numbers — our population is aging and living longer. Baby boomers are becoming seniors by the masses. Guess what? They need more medical care.
The healthcare field is growing.
Valuable medical assistants are in huge demand. We strongly suggest you don’t wait to become qualified.
If you think you might want to work somewhere in the field of healthcare, becoming a medical assistant is a great place to start. You get to see the entire field from a unique perspective, be exposed to other opportunities — and make money at the same time.
You could land a great job in a medical office setting. You could decide to stay in it for a long time or use it as a place to learn the ropes.
The medical assistant field is predicted to grow 23 percent in the next decade. Positions are available right now — and they’re not going away anytime soon. You’re going to need the right training if you want a job as a medical assistant, and that job will be yours for the taking.
It won’t take long to earn the qualifications you need — and your training will go a long way.
You could earn your certification at our Health Sciences Center in Grayling. It’s designed to create an atmosphere of a real medical care facility. All department activities overlap inside the building. The technology and instructional methods are so industry-current that they’ll blow your mind. We have equipment that only a few, select other colleges in the state have.
There’s no deadline to apply, and you can enroll now.
You can afford it! Financial aid is available.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking the process is too complicated or that you won’t qualify. Ask us! More than 80 percent of the students at one college we know about (wink, wink) receive some sort of financial aid. Asking for help is a great way to start this process. It’s OK if you don’t know what to do; we do.
So what if you’ve never done this before?
It’s time to ask for support.
The annual median salary for certified medical assistants is $31,540 with a job growth outlook over the next seven years of a whopping 23% (according to the US Department of Labor and Bureau of Labor Statistics)!
Getting into this field is a great way to become more familiar with what happens on the ground in the medical field.
What are you waiting for? Patients and employers are waiting for you!
