Healthcare careers are some of the fastest growing in the United States. Two trends reinforce that statement: Americans are getting older and need more health care, and new jobs are being created as the quality of healthcare is improving. According to the Alaska Economic Trends published by the Alaska Department of Labor, Nov. 2004, medical assistant positions will be the second fastest growing occupation in allied healthcare well through 2015.
