Thinking about pursuing an administrative career in allied health care? At The College of Health Care Professions, our certificate training program can give you the skills you need to pursue a career as a medical office assistant.

Medical office assistants are often the first health care professionals that patients meet when they walk through the door. These office professionals are often tasked with maintaining patient records, scheduling appointments, processing billing, submitting insurance forms, managing supplies and more. They may also find themselves assisting with patient treatment, as needed.

With a medical office specialist certificate from The College of Health Care Professions, you will be well prepared to pursue relevant and in-demand allied health care administrative careers, such as a medical assistant or a medical records and health information technician. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics*, the job outlook for medical assistants is projected to grow by 19 percent from 2019 - 2029. Likewise, at a projected rate of 8 percent, opportunities for medical records and health information technicians are also on the rise. Both are substantially higher than the 3.7 percent job growth outlook projected for all occupations total.
