The medical assistant field is projected to have one of the highest numbers of openings for workers through 2018. Graduates are coming from all three sectors of the education system, but are all of them receiving quality education and becoming competent in their profession? The American Association of Medical Assistants is one of the fastest-growing associations in the country, and managing these new professionals for their current and future careers and education needs presents new challenges for member management. Our speaker will discuss this and other challenges facing allied health profession groups.
