Certificate in Medical Office Specialist

Once you graduate from The College of Health Care Professions’ Medical Office Specialist Certificate Program, you will be prepared to begin your new career as a medical office specialist. A medical office specialist is a health care administrator who oversees the non-clinical, administrative duties in a medical facility. Some of their tasks include keeping patient records, processing billing, and submitting insurance. Medical office specialists are the backbone of any medical office. They answer phones, emails, and other patient correspondence; manage office files and order supplies; and facilitate patient admissions. Medical office specialists are typically the first people patients see when entering the medical office; that is why it is imperative that office specialists enjoy greeting and interacting with patients. If you enjoy organization, interpersonal communication, and paperwork management, a career in healthcare administration may be perfect for you. And with a certificate from The College of Health Care Professions, you will be able to put your organizational and people skills to use with an entry-level position as a medical office specialist.
