Medical Office Assistant

If you're the type of person that can bring order to chaos and you don't mind taking charge to keep things running smoothly, there's a place for you in the healthcare industry.

A Medical Office Assistant is often the first person that patients and clients see within a doctor's office, clinic, or hospital. They help coordinate patient visits and facilitate all the moving parts in the medical office setting.

At Harford Community College, we offer a medical office assistant certificate program that can prepare you for employment in private practice, hospitals, or clinics.
