Medical offices are fast-paced and rewarding workplaces. Medical office assistants (MOAs) need relevant, up-to-date training to thrive in this growing industry. Reeves College's 43-week Medical Office Administration diploma program trains students in the clerical and medical skills necessary to run a modern medical office.
Students are taught office skills such as keyboarding, bookkeeping and use of Microsoft Office. Students also learn medical-office-specific skills such as medical transcription, medical record-keeping, billing software, and administering basic medical tests. Students are prepared to answer basic patient questions, as well as the fundamentals of human anatomy and diseases, pharmacology, and clinical procedures.
Students put their skills into practice during a 100-hour practicum in a medical office. In addition to their Medical Office Assistant diploma, graduates of this program will also receive a Standard First Aid Certificate and a CPR "C" Certificate.
