Medical Office Administration
A Certified Medical Administrative Assistant serves a key role in many medical facilities. This multi-skilled practitioner is knowledgeable in front desk reception, medical records management, insurance billing and authorization, medical law and ethics, risk management, information processing, and other fundamental medical office tasks. The Certified Medical Administrative Assistant must maintain familiarity with clinical and technical concepts required to coordinate administrative office functions in the healthcare setting.
At Sussex County Community College, we are proud to offer this credentialed, 15-week program to members of our community. The newly-revised Medical Office Administration program is designed to equip students for entry-level positions in the healthcare field, as well as equipping the student with the skills and knowledge necessary for passing the national certification exam. Upon successful completion of all course work, the student will be qualified to sit for the National Healthcareer Association’s CMAA (Certified Medical Administrative Assistant) exam.
A 100-hour Practicum, which will provide the students with the opportunity to gain valuable work experience, is also included in the MOA program. Students will be placed in a local medical facility where, under the supervision of a physician or practice manager, and with the guidance of the medical facility’s support staff, the student is encouraged to experience and perform duties which he/she has trained for in the classroom. The Practicum is the capstone experience for the Medical Office Administration Program.
