Medical Office Administration is a 64- or 66-credit hour program offering specialized clinical and administrative skills required to coordinate office functions in a healthcare setting. This program is approved by the American Medical Technologists (AMT) Association of Allied Health Professionals. Graduates are prepared to take the Certified Medical Administrative Specialist (CMAS) examination. Graduates are prepared for positions such as medical transcriptionists, medical assistants, medical coding associates, and medical office administrators.
The Associate of Applied Science degree, Technical Certificates, and Certificates of Proficiency are designed for employment purposes, and it should not be assumed that the degree or the courses in these programs can be transferred to all four-year institutions. While some institutions do accept some (or in some cases all) courses in A.A.S. programs, the general rule is that courses in A.A.S. degrees are not accepted in transfer toward bachelor's degrees unless that degree has been articulated with that specific institution. Students to whom transfer is important should get assurances in writing in advance from the institution to which they wish to transfer. Contact the Division Chair of Business Technology for information regarding articulation agreements for the A.A.S. in Medical Office Administration.
