Medical Office Administration
Posted By webmaster On December 17, 2008 @ 4:29 pm In | Comments Disabled
Medical Office Administrative Assistants perform clerical duties in medical facilities for physicians and serve as receptionist, bookkeeper, billing clerk, or office manager. The job involves computer word processing equipment, medical database, and spreadsheet software. Exceptional people skills and even a second language are helpful in this field.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: If you are enrolling in any health occupation program, any misdemeanor or felony conviction relating to drug offenses, assault/violent crimes, sexual assault, fraud, or theft that you have on your record, will result in the college not being able to place you in a clinical or externship site. As a result, you will not be able to complete the program. See your program coordinator for more detailed information.
