Soon to be high school graduates thinking about enrolling in a medical assisting training school will have definite hopes for their career after they graduate.
Hopes such as meaningful work, co-worker respect, and a good salary.
Also high on the list of these hopes will likely be the potential for career growth.
Fortunately, a medical assistant career can be the jumping off point for a range of healthcare job possibilities.
Is it any wonder that a medical assisting career recently came in at #18 in U.S. News & World Report’s ranking of top healthcare support jobs?
The opportunity for professional and career advancement is a very real thing for medical assistants after they start working.
Similar to other healthcare organizations, Stanford Health Care offers a career ladder that gives their medical assisting employees four different levels to work towards:
Rising from Level I to Level IV, an employee continually gains more medical assisting experience as they take on more job responsibilities.
Specialization in a particular field of medicine also becomes a medical assisting career option, such as the potential to focus on podiatry, obstetrics and gynecology, or pediatrics.
Your way into working in one of these specialized areas can vary, but usually starts with one or more of the following: extra certification, additional training, extended medical assisting experience, and an interest in an area of medicine that treats a particular patient group.
Medical assisting can also offer an alternative, and perhaps more achievable route (you’re gaining medical experience and are getting paid) into alternative healthcare careers.
Medical assistants can use their work experience as a springboard to a different career altogether, such as becoming a surgical technologist, laboratory technologist, physician’s assistant, or a nurse.
With these possibilities for career advancement, would you like to enroll in a medical assisting program?
