More than ever, healthcare careers are becoming invaluable and appreciated. More specifically, medical office assistant (MOA) jobs have become increasingly abundant in the job market to help meet the demands of our healthcare system. Whether you are looking for a flexible new career or you want to fulfill your desire to help others, a job as a medical office assistant might just be for you!

Abundant Job Market

According to Alis Alberta, the outlook for this industry is above average, which means that even more jobs are going to be available in the market. When you search, be sure also to look up posts such as medical transcriptionist, medical administrative assistant, and medical billing clerk as these are all occupations that will be open to you once you've completed your diploma.

Essential Team Member

Become a vital part of a team to support the health of your community and maintain a fulfilling career knowing that you're contributing to a more significant cause. Time and again, we've heard of stories about medical office assistants supporting a medical team to help prioritize patient appointment requests, answer basic questions about patients' medical conditions and prescriptions, and perform office duties.

Flexible Schedules

If you need to work your schedule around your family, a job as a medical office assistant could provide that for you. Some clinics and health centres may operate with flexible schedules, which will allow you the opportunity to work when it's convenient for you.

"Reeves College changed my life and that I can finally actually take my son to school and then I'll be working the same hours as he's going to the school so it makes it easier again for that family life so that we can spend more time together," says Amber, Medical Office Administration graduate.
