La Prairie, Canada -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/18/2012 -- MedicalAssistantVacancies.com has published information that addresses all aspects of becoming a medical assistant. The information is aimed at those who are looking to pursue an education in the certified medical assistant, or CMA , field. An authority on the subject, the website is designed to be the go-to online location for future students who need to, or at least should, arm themselves with the necessary information prior to pulling the trigger on a decision.
Experts project that some parts of the country are slated for a shortage of health care providers. According to Roger Lucas, vice president of human resources at Aspirus Wausau Hospital, said that the shortage “will be more severe in the next four to five years when baby boomers begin to retire…” This will most likely lead to a tremendous increase in demand for medical assistants.
The job of a CMA consists of conducting, and ordering, routine physical exams under the watch of a physician. The average salary of a CMA is around $86,000 per year nationally, and according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the pay is expected to see a 30 percent increase over the next 10 years.
MedicalAssistantVacancies.com points out that while the position is very attractive, obtaining the certification doesn’t come without challenges. The first hurdle that students need to get over is finding the right information, such as the type of school to attend and the difference between all the available programs, so as to make the right move forward. According to the website, students should also ensure that they are up to the rigors of the position by assessing their strengths and weaknesses.
Another subject that is covered by MedicalAssistantVacancies.com deals with individuals who have been working in the medical field for a while but have yet to become certified . According to the website, many medical assistants began working as such in a time when a high school diploma was enough for the position. And while certification remains voluntary and not mandated by law, many doctors today prefer to hire certified assistants over non-certified.
