Medical Office Assistant

Over the past few years, federal rules of reimbursement for Medicare and Medicaid have changed and medical billing has gone high-tech. The result is a need for increasing numbers of specially trained office staff in the medical field. Medical secretaries use their knowledge of medical terminology, office technology, and medical office procedures in their work as receptionists, insurance clerks, transcriptionists and office managers in medical settings.

The Medical Office Assistant program prepares students with the skills necessary to enter the medical workforce in doctors' offices, hospitals and other facilities. Specialized course content focuses on medical transcription, terminology, forms, and billing.

You will practice what you've learned during two internships-one paid and one unpaid.

All courses in the program may be applied to the Office Technology A.A.S. degree
