Projections from the United States Department of Labor show employment of medical and health services managers is projected to grow 23 percent from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. As the large baby-boom population ages and people remain active later in life, the healthcare industry as a whole will see an increase in the demand for medical services (US Department of Labor, 2012). In particular, it is noted that the number of job openings is expected to exceed the number of MSAH graduates.
