A career in healthcare is rewarding and fulfilling. Whether you provide direct patient care or assume a “behind the scenes” role, healthcare is a fast-paced, in-demand field where professionals can enjoy job security for years to come. If you are researching medical office administration schools, look no further than Unitek College’s Medical Office Administration Program.
Medical Office Administration Program is available at 5 different campuses
Unitek College’s Medical Office Administration Program is available at 5 different campuses, allowing students to choose the campus most convenient for them. The curriculum consists of seven courses that will provide students with a background in medical terminology, office computer applications, medical office procedures, law and ethics necessary for handling medical records, and an understanding in coding procedures. Students graduate as professionals ready for industry, with practical skills and hands-on experience to help them thrive in their role on a healthcare team.
Strong organizational skills and attention to detail
If you are considering a career as a medical office administrator, it is important to reflect on your personality type, interests, and preferred work environments before making the financial investment. Strong organizational skills and attention to detail are especially important since medical office administrators will be managing medical records, processing insurance claims, and setting up appointments. Handling the various personalities that come in and out of a medical clinic or office is not always an easy task, which is why a service-oriented personality is especially important.
Unitek College differs from other programs in that we offer career development and employment services to students throughout their time in the program. Realizing that our students’ goal is to obtain meaningful employment after graduation, we help students prepare their resumes, cover letters, and instruction on how to look for jobs both online and through personal networks. In addition to education and training, we equip our students with information on how to professional brand themselves to be ready for industry.
