Students enrolled in our Online Medical Billing/Administration program will learn about the healthcare industry by taking medical terminology, electronic health records, and medical topics.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, between 2020 to 2030, the employment outlook for these skilled medical records and health information specialists is expected to increase.
