  Doctors and the entire medical office team will appreciate the high quality work you produce. Earning an A.S. or A.A.S. degree in Medical Office Administration will qualify you to start a great career as a medical secretary, medical transcription office assistant, medical office coordinator, or medical office assistant. The program teaches you medical terms, computer keyboard skills and speed development, software used in medical offices, customer service basics, and business communications.
  A technical certificate is included as an option within this degree program. Students may choose to pursue an A.S. or A.A.S. degree and earn a technical certificate while completing the requirements for the degree, or pursue one or more certificate programs to develop or upgrade their skills in a particular field. Contact an advisor or counselor to determine the career education path that is best for you.
  Students may complete a degree in only one of the three specialty tracks, Office Administration, Medical Office or Office Software Applications. Students who wish to add a second area of specialization after completing a degree should pursue the technical certificates in that area.
