Recent BLS publications indicate that employment of medical secretaries is projected to grow much faster than the average occupation, with an expected 27% increase between 2008 and 2018.* The BLS suggests that this expansion in medical secretary jobs will stem from overall growth in the healthcare industry as well as increasing automation of offices and organizational restructuring. The agency also asserts that experienced and trained medical secretaries will enjoy the best job opportunities.
