The medical assistant position has long been viewed as a high-paying job with great benefits, but it’s becoming increasingly popular with the millennials and other demographic groups that are being hit hard by the Affordable Care Act.
Many medical assistants and other medical workers are leaving the field as they have been for decades.
Now, the number of medical assistant jobs in the U.S. is shrinking, according to a report from The New York Times.
The Times noted that the number has dropped from 4.2 million positions in 2000 to just over 3 million positions today.
The report also said that medical assistant careers have been hit hard due to the ACA, which has been the focus of a massive backlash against the new healthcare law.
But many medical assistants are leaving because they no longer have the financial support to live and work in the city they love.
And while many employers are offering healthcare benefits, many of those benefits are often not as generous as what is offered to other professions.
While the ACA may be making medical assistants more competitive, it’s also making medical workers less comfortable, especially in their own neighborhoods, where they have seen a drop in job opportunities, according the report.
While many medical workers feel like they have to move out of the city to find work, that’s not always the case.
As many as 70 percent of the jobs in hospitals in the region are vacant, according an analysis by the nonprofit Hospitality Research Alliance.
The biggest obstacle is often the lack of transportation, said Mary Beth Pritchard, the president of the Medical Staffing Association of New York.
Pritcher said it can be challenging for a medical staff to move to a new city to do their jobs, as they don’t have access to cars, and often have to use public transportation.
“When we go to the hospital, we are on our own for transportation,” she said.
“You can’t just hop on the bus and walk to the medical center.”
And when they have nowhere to go, they can’t get an appointment, which can lead to patients having to wait hours or days for a physician to come by.
That can lead people to stop going to the doctor in the first place, which could make them less likely to seek medical care in the future, said Pritchers husband, Dr. Joseph Pritchett.
“They are going to have more issues,” he said.
The decline in the medical assistants’ positions has been particularly dramatic in Manhattan, where hospitals and doctors have been trying to attract more medical workers and more residents.
Pritz, a longtime medical assistant, said that she started to see a decline in her role at a hospital in 2012, as she and her colleagues were trying to recruit new residents to their hospital.
“We were trying desperately to fill out the form to bring in the new residents,” Pritz said.
But that year, she said, she was not able to fill it out because she couldn’t afford to rent an apartment.
She said she began to think about leaving the city for good when she was told by a doctor that she had an infection.
The doctor recommended that Pritz consider moving to another city and that she do so soon.
But it took Pritz longer than she thought to decide on what she would do with her career, and she was finally able to quit in 2014.
She eventually retired from the medical office in 2018.
“I wanted to do something different and I felt like I had to do it,” Pritch said.
It’s the same thing you would do when you’re going through a divorce.
You want to make the most of your time.
I’m not going to get divorced.
I can’t go into a marriage where you’re just going to go and be a housekeeper and cook dinner for everyone, she added.
“It’s a little bit different, and I don’t want to feel like I’ve been left behind.”
