THE MEDICAL OFFICE
A GREAT PLACE TO BELONG

As a Medical Office Assistant, you work with doctors, allied health professionals, and directly with patients. You handle all the administrative tasks necessary to keep doctors’ offices and medical clinics running smoothly, and that’s no small job. That’s why the demand for skilled medical office assistants remains strong.

Typically, you are responsible for patient records, health insurance forms, and medical billing. You schedule appointments, check in patients, collect copays and serve as the communication link between insurance companies, pharmacies, the doctors, allied healthcare providers and the patients. From checking-in patients and relaying patient concerns to keeping medical records or doing medical coding and billing, as a Medical Office Assistant, you are a vital part of the medical team – it’s a great place to belong.

What’s more, the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry Center for Workforce Information identifies MEDICAL SECRETARY | MEDICAL OFFICE ASSISTANT on the 2018 High Priority Occupation (HPO) List for Philadelphia County. The purpose of the HPO list is to align workforce training and education investments with occupations that are in demand by employers, have higher skill needs and are most likely to provide family sustaining wages.
