Technical Certificate

Medical Office Management (6387)

Inside every fast-paced medical office is a group of highly trained associates working with patients and their records, medical documents, and other medical office matters. The Medical Office Management program prepares you to enter this exciting field as a medical receptionist, medical office clerk, or medical office assistant. You will learn medical office terminology and software. If you are already working in one of these positions, this additional training will be very beneficial.

This technical certificate is included as an option within the Medical Office Administration degree program. Students may choose to pursue an A.S. or A.A.S. degree and earn technical certificates 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 certificate in that area.

Starting Salary: $20,000

Credits earned in this program can be applied towards the A.S./A.A.S. degree in Medical Office Administration.
