This certificate program will prepare you with the training to work as a capable entry-level health care administrative assistant. At Pima Medical Institute, you will gain the skills needed to work in health care administration, such as medical insurance procedures, coding and billing tasks, triaging patients and more. Health care administrative assistants are the front face of the medical office, so classes also focus on the soft, professional skills that foster an optimum patient experience.
Health care administrative assistants are key members of any medical office team. This is an entry-level position with many opportunities for growth. While this role does not perform medical work on patients, it provides vital support to doctors and nurses by ensuring the office is run smoothly and efficiently.
