The two-year Associate Degree enables the student to become a valuable asset to the medical office through intensive skill-based courses. Students learn the latest version of Microsoft Office Suite and gain experience in working with specialized medical office software in patient scheduling, patient record management, collecting co-pays, and providing administrative support to the provider.
The college must ensure that clients, patients or medical information are not placed in jeopardy by students during learning experiences. Therefore, students in office or clinical experiences must demonstrate sufficient emotional stability to withstand the stresses, uncertain- ties and changing circumstances that characterize client/patient/medical information responsibilities or be removed from placement. Furthermore, the student is expected to have the emotional stability required to exercise sound judgment, accept direction and guidance from a supervisor or faculty member, and establish rapport and maintain sensitive interpersonal relationships with employers, clients/ patients and their families.
Students must also be aware that site placement might require criminal background checks, proof of insurances, general health statements from personal providers, as well as additional titers or vaccinations beyond what the college requires. Students must successfully complete a drug screening.
