Medical Office Assistant (CTMAS)


This program has been replaced by Medical Office Assistant (Clinical) Certificate (CTMOS). Students currently enrolled need to complete it by the end of the Spring/Summer 2015 semester.

If you have questions about this program please contact a program advisor or contact a general student advisor.


This program prepares the student for entry-level positions in doctors' offices, clinics, hospitals, pharmaceutical or insurance companies, or public health facilities where health information is prepared, analyzed, and retrieved. The student learns to perform receptionist duties, prepare charts and reports, schedule and bill patients, code and submit bills to insurance companies, and perform some patient-care duties such as sterilizing instruments and taking vital signs. This certificate is not an AAMA certification preparation program.

What Students Say About Online Classes

“Online classes allowed me to take more credits per semester while working part-time. Besides, what is better than attending school curled up on the couch and in your pajamas!”
