I’ve always been a huge fan of the Front Office Medical Assistant (FMA) position, and I was very excited to learn more about the medical assistant job market. I’ve worked as a medical assistant for the past year, and I’m looking to work for the same company for the next year, so I wanted to share my thoughts and opinions.
Medical assistants are not really that common in the U.S. and the majority of us don’t see a need for one. But a medical assistant is a very specialized job, and as a result, they may not be able to command as high a salary as a doctor or nurse. But, the average salary will be lower than what a typical medical assistant makes, so it’s worth looking into.
The average medical assistant salary is $40k, but the average doctor or nurse salary is $68k. So its possible that a medical assistant will make more than a typical medical assistant. For a medical assistant to earn a salary higher than what a typical medical assistant makes is a big accomplishment. But the fact that a medical assistant is a specialized occupation and that they may not be able to command a specific salary makes that accomplishment less impressive.
So if you’re thinking about getting your own medical assistant, just don’t. They’re basically the janitorial equivalent of a doctor or nurse. The only reason that they make more than a typical medical assistant is because they’re specialized.
However, if you have a medical background, a hospital would be the perfect place to work, as there are usually fewer regulations. Also, medical assistants are well trained and can work in an emergency room, a surgery center, a radiology suite, a pediatric ER, or even a hospice. But again, if youre just looking for a job, you might be better off just not getting one.
Sure, doctors and nurses are expensive, but the salary is usually the same. The only real reason they make more than a typical medical assistant is because theyre specialized. Also, doctors and nurses are well trained and can work in an emergency room, a surgery center, a radiology suite, a pediatric ER, or even a hospice. But again, if youre just looking for a job, you might be better off just not getting one.
Doctors and nurses are not that different from the other kinds of health care workers. They are trained in a certain way that will make them efficient and effective. While medical assistants are not often required to be doctors, they can be, and if you ask very few people they will admit they can. The most common reasons for medical assistants working as doctors or nurses is because they are the only people in the hospital that have the knowledge to do the job.
Doctors and nurses are both hired to heal people, but they are trained as specialists. Doctors are trained in a very specific set of skills, whereas nurses are trained in a broader set. Doctors are usually more expensive and in most states, that means they are paid more. Doctors are required to fill in for doctors or nurses that have had any kind of injury or illness, whereas nurses don’t get paid for doing a job that they don’t need to do.
Doctors are typically more expensive, but they are also considered more competent and more “serious.” Nurses are considered “casual” and are often allowed to do any job they want. Doctors, on the other hand, usually are required to take care of people and usually have more qualifications than nurses.
There are a few reasons why doctors and nurses are paid more and nurses are not: 1) Doctors and nurses both need to be competent, and the doctors need to be competent at a job, whereas nurses need to be competent at a job but don’t have to be competent at it. 2) Doctors and nurses also both need to be licensed and those require a specific license, whereas the nurses can work in any kind of job that they want to without having to pay a license.
