Medical Office Administration Schools and Training Programs

Medical office administrators typically do not treat patients, but they play a vital role in the health care industry -- medical facilities could not run without them. These professionals' duties may overlap with related careers such as medical secretary, health services manager, health information manager or medical records technician. If you want to work in health services, but not necessarily provide direct care, medical office administration could be a good career choice for you.

Careers in Medical Office Administration

For administrative assistants and administrators in medical offices or clinics, daily tasks and responsibilities vary depending on the type and size of facility. In smaller facilities, medical office administrators handle diverse day-to-day operations that could include book-keeping, processing patients' health information, or medical billing and coding.

Administrators with supervisory roles in physicians' practices or clinics typically manage personnel and facility operations, as well as finances and record-keeping. Large medical facilities usually employ a range of health care managers and technicians who may work in a certain specialty or clinical area, such as nursing, surgery, therapy, medical records or health information.

Another related career is the clinical health care manager; these are medical professionals who have become administrators, responsible for activities such as ordering supplies, planning work schedules and supervising employees. For health care administrators of the non-clinical nature, such as health information managers, duties are more behind-the-scenes. These professionals are responsible for organizing and managing patient data, while assuring security, confidentiality and accuracy.
