Medical Office Assistant (Clinical) (CTMOS)

Certificate

This program has been replaced by Clinical Medical Assistant Certificate (CTCMA). Students currently enrolled need to complete it by the end of the Spring/Summer 2016 semester.

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

Description

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 taking vital signs and performing medical procedures. This certificate is not an AAMA certification preparation program.

Note: Students who complete this revised program prior to accreditation will be grandfathered in and allowed to sit for the certification exam.
