If you are already an experienced Medical Assistant and want to advance your career, then one way to go about it is to upgrade your qualifications with a Bachelor degree.
This level of qualification opens you up to finding work in assistant and entry-level managerial positions in a wide range of medical settings including hospitals, clinics, nursing care facilities, doctors’ offices and insurance companies.
Of course if you're already working full-time, the prospect of going back to college can be quite daunting. One option is to take an online course.
Bryant & Stratton College Online have recently announced that they are offering a Bachelor of Science in Health Services Administration program via their website.
Their degree program is aimed at providing graduates with a wide range of knowledge required for managing health services and facilities, and place a strong emphasis on finance, legal, disaster planning and management, and information systems.
And the program doesn't only involve sitting behind a computer - students will also be provided with research opportunities and field experience.
“We are excited to announce that the Bachelor’s in Health Services Administration degree is now available to students online. Management is a growing part of careers in healthcare and this degree will help students learn the skills they’ll need to be successful,” said Scott Traylor, Associate Campus Director of Online Education at Bryant & Stratton College. “Plus, for busy people who are interested in advancing their career through a degree, taking classes online can be a good option because of the flexible format. Online classes give them the chance to earn a degree while balancing school with an existing job, raising children or other responsibilities.”
Sure, it does take a lot of time and money to achieve a Bachelor Degree, however the effort can be well worth it when you consider that median hourly wage is $39.35 for Medical and Health Services Managers.
