Medical Field GREW During Worst Recession Since the Depression

If there was ever any doubt that going to medical assistant school, nursing assistant school or online medical billing school leads to very stable employment, this chart dispels it.  The Labor Departments recent Establishment Survey looked at how employment in all sectors has fared during the Great Recession that began in 2007.  While there are some serious lows for many industries, and wild fluctuations in many others, the medical industry saw unimpeded, continuous, healthy growth as evidenced by the chart shown here.  A nice, steady, upward facing slope even during the worst of the downturn between 2007 and 2009.  In the last four years, the medical industry has added more than 14.5 million workers to the economy. If you’re on the fence about the value in taking medical assistant training or medical billing courses, I cannot point to a better argument in favor.  See the highlights of the entire report in this slideshow over at
