Ambulatory Setting Expected to Provide More Job Growth Than Hospitals

American Medical News (02/13/12) Victoria Stagg Elliott

Over the next decade, as the population ages, the number of ambulatory care sector jobs likely will grow quicker than those for inpatient services and other sectors of the health care job market. The number of jobs in doctors’ offices will rise 32.7% from 2,315,800 in 2010 to 3,073,600 in 2020, according to a report by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Hospitals will add more jobs, but the growth will be slower, rising from 5,695,900 jobs at hospitals in 2010 to 6,638,400 by 2020. The BLS report indicates job creation in doctors’ offices will be largely driven by new positions for managers, physician assistants, nurses, medical assistants, financial clerks, administrators, physicians, and surgeons.
