Are you interested in the administrative side of healthcare and don’t necessarily want to do hands-on care? A career as a medical administrative assistant gives you the opportunity to help people and enter a high-demand profession—no direct patient treatment required.
What’s a medical administrative assistant? Medical Administrative Assistants work with patients and healthcare providers to conduct a variety of administrative procedures, including scheduling appointments, electronic medical coding, filing insurance claims, maintaining records, as well as accounting and billing.
In our part-time, hybrid program, you’ll learn all of the skills you need to get an administrative health care position. You’ll gain experience in medical coding, maintaining patient charts, arranging appointments and hospital admissions, and the ins-and-outs of health insurance forms.
Convenient classes: Take classes two nights a week and complete career-relevant projects at home.
Clinical placement: Complete an internship in a real-world healthcare setting.
