Experts warn there won't be enough doctors to treat the millions of people newly insured under the law. At current graduation and training rates, the nation could face a shortage of as many as 150,000 doctors and 450,000 medical support technicians in the next 15 years, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges. The growth of the medical industry is proportional to the growth of society, which is followed by the need of professional support personnel, therefore, the school’s Medical Assistant (MAS) program responds to today's critical need of professional medical personnel for supporting primary health doctors, assisting them in their daily routines and taking part in a variety of duties and procedures depending on doctor’s need or specialization.
