UNLV’s Medical Assistant Certificate program hit an important milestone in November with the graduation of its first students. These students have been working diligently toward this goal since they enrolled last spring.
The seven program graduates have good reason to feel optimistic about their careers. The demand for medical assistants is projected to grow rapidly in the coming decade. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) anticipates employment in this field will increase 31% from 2010 to 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations.
