Online 18-Month Medical Office Administration Program
Medical billers and administrators keep healthcare facilities running behind the scenes. These billers and administrators do most of the communication between providers, insurance companies, and patients. Students enrolled in our online Medical Office 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 and 2030, the employment outlook for these skilled medical records and health information specialists is expected to increase. While local needs may differ from national averages, medical office administrators may be a good entry point into the field.
UCI Online offers a WE CARE approach that allows us to work more one-on-one with our students. Our organization is centered around WE CARE, which makes up our core values. Students are supported at every step as they develop intellectually, mentally, emotionally, and vocationally.
