According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS): medical assisting is expected to experience a higher-than-average rate of growth in the coming years: “Employment of medical assistants is projected to grow 29 percent from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. The growth of the aging baby-boom population will continue to spur demand for preventive medical services, which are often provided by physicians. As their practices expand, physicians will hire more assistants to perform routine administrative and clinical duties, allowing the physicians to see more patients.”
 
The BLS has similar predictions for pharmacy technicians: “Employment of pharmacy technicians is projected to grow 20 percent from 2012 to 2022, faster than the average for all occupations. The population is aging, and older people typically use more prescription medicines than younger people. Higher rates of chronic diseases such as diabetes among all age groups also will lead to increased demand for prescription medications. Advances in pharmaceutical research will allow for more prescription medications to be used to fight diseases.”
