The numerous opportunities and potential for growth in the medical industry are driving my decision to become a Certified Medical Assistant. I am confident that obtaining certification in this field will lead to long-term satisfaction in my chosen career.
Having a strong passion for the medical field and a genuine desire to help others, working as a medical assistant brings me immense satisfaction. This profession is currently experiencing growth and high demand due to various factors, including the aging of the “baby-boomer” generation. As these individuals retire, there is an increased need for medical care.
The rise in demand for medical assistants, doctors, and nurses can be attributed to a variety of factors. CMAs have many job responsibilities that keep them occupied throughout the day, preventing aimless wandering or engaging in unimportant tasks to pass the time.
If a CMA has free time, they can find various useful tasks to do, including catching up on paperwork, filing documents in patients’ medical records, documenting in patient charts, working on scheduling for the next day, cleaning supplies, cleaning or setting up exam rooms, and other tasks within their job description to keep themselves busy.
Besides the aforementioned reasons, there are other less significant factors for selecting medical assisting. Though salary should be taken into account when making a career choice, it is not my primary motive for pursuing this field. Job security, a fast-paced work environment, and the fulfillment of assisting those in need are more important reasons compared to monetary considerations.
