Additional Information

We have just updated our curriculum and we are very excited about some of the new learning tools we have incorporated into the Medical Office Administration course work. You will be able to enter a “virtual medical office” that allows you to see how a medical office employee actually functions in various situations. Come by and see what we have to offer. Ogden-Weber Tech College has incorporated the Medical Transcription program into the Health Information Technologies area. Health Information Technologies also offers Medical Coding and Medical Transcription Certificates.

Mission Statement

The Health Information Technologies Program at Ogden-Weber Tech College is committed to providing state-of-the-art training of students for entry level positions in Medical Office Administration, Medical Coding and Medical Transcription. This commitment is designed to meet the needs of both students seeking skills to secure employment, as well as employers who are seeking highly skilled workers to support the goals of their organization. We accomplish this by continued interaction with local employers and monitoring of the healthcare industry to reflect the rapidly changing needs of these occupations. We are further committed in training students in the basics of professionalism and ethics to strengthen the core values of our students as they enter the workforce. We believe that this will in turn provide stronger individuals and communities. We want our students to believe that they can “start here, and go anywhere!”
