Are you interested in working in a healthcare environment, but not in providing direct clinical care? Consider medical office administration!
Anthem College Online offers a Medical Office Administration Diploma* that prepares students to work in and understand the medical office environment. They develop administrative and technological skills that help medical offices work faster and smarter.
Graduates will be able to compete for positions as medical secretaries, a particularly bright spot in the administrative assistant job market. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, medical secretary jobs will expand much faster than average, driven by the rapid growth in the healthcare market.
Students learn medical office procedures such as admitting patients to hospitals, managing patient health records, working with health insurance, and medical coding. Courses blend clinical knowledge with administrative training, and include an overview of the healthcare field, human anatomy and physiology, computer skills, and communications.
Program graduates can compete for entry-level positions in medical offices, including administrative medical assistant, patient account representative, insurance billing representative, medical records clerk and patient financial services representative.
Anthem College Online also provides students with greater flexibility to decide when and from where to log in to their classes and work on assignments. They are taught by professionals from the field who use a highly interactive, web-based platform to deliver lectures and demonstrate office procedures. Students communicate with each other and their instructors in online forums where they discuss course material and post comments to message boards.
Medical Office Administration students can even practice their skills in a simulated online medical office.
