Becky’s Answer

Omar,

Over the years I have worked in medical offices where the office manager started off as a medical assistant and worked themselves up to being an office manager. This was in the days where there were more privately owned practices; but I doubt in today's work environment that would be a possibility without earning your higher educations (college degree).

Lorraine’s Answer

Hello Omar, thanks for reaching out,
In my experience, I have met medical assistants who have been promoted to the level of lead supervisor or who have transitioned into positions in medical office management. In the same way, I have also seen medical assistants at my job who have pursued education in other healthcare areas such as nursing school, or pursued education in other fields related to healthcare. Healthcare offers many opportunities!

Hi Omar, I have worked as a medical assistant for the past 11 years in Ohio. I have watched others be promoted to other positions whether it be a lead or a managers position. When our group was taken over by a larger corporation, things slightly changed, however, there are opportunities still for some advancement, or our company will pay for education for you to further your degree like Lorraine spoke of. Look at the standards of your state also to see what the limitations are for a medical assistant and see if there are other certifications such as plabotomy or IV certifications that you could add to make you a more valuable employee. The medical assistant field has a lot to offer. Best of luck!
