Medical administrative assistants are the front-office staff who ensure medical offices operate efficiently while also fostering a friendly and positive patient experience. While having an interest in the health care system, medical administrative assistants do not interface directly with patient care, rather they greet patients, triage appointments and provide other assistance.
As a student in our Medical Administrative Assistant program, you will gain a strong background in office skills as well as business communication and customer service. At Pima Medical Institute, you will also earn the sought-after experience of working with electronic health records. This combination of soft and hard skills prepares you for a career in office administration, both in the health care field and in other industries as well.
Pima Medical Institute has collaborated with top employers to determine the most desirable skills for a 21st-century medical administrative assistant. Our course curriculum reflects this examination and offers a solid foundation in administrative skills and medical terminology, as well as an introduction to hospital and laboratory procedures.
