The Medical Office Assistant degree program is designed to prepare students for careers in the medical office.

With its strong skills and clinical components, graduates of this program may expect to find employment as administrative medical assistants, clinical medical assistants, medical transcriptionists, medical billing clerks, hospital admitting clerks, and hospital unit secretaries.
