About the Program

The Medical Office Administrative Assistant Certificate provides the training students need as specialists in administrative support activities in hospitals, free standing outpatient clinics, and group practices with large numbers of physicians and medical support personnel. The focus of the program is on the clerical and administrative functions with no clinical training or responsibilities.  However, students in the program will receive course work in medical office procedures and terminology to insure a sound basic understanding of the environment in which they will work.

Special Requirements:

Basic keyboarding is a skill necessary for successful course completion in the Medical Office Administrative Assistant program; therefore, AOT 105-Keyboarding is a prerequisite course for most AOT courses. Students are required to take AOT 105-Keyboarding or score 25 net words per minutes (nwpm) on the keyboarding placement test.

Students must earn a grade of “C” or better in all of the courses offered within the Business/Public Services and Information Systems Technology Departments for the grade to be counted toward graduation.  Specifically, these include courses with the following prefixes: ACC, AOT, AHS, AOT, BAF, BUS, CPT, EGR, HUS, IST, LEG, MED, MGT and MKT.

Students must meet all exit program competencies for graduation from this program.
