At the center of every busy medical office is a team of trained professionals that works with patient records, medical documents, and other medical office matters. The Associate of Applied Science in Medical Office Management prepares you online for a career as part of this expert team. It also qualifies you to seek national certification as an administrative specialist. You'll study the communication, clinical, and organizational skills required to provide outstanding patient care. In addition, you?ll master appointment management and scheduling, medical records management, insurance processing, insurance coding and billing, and financial management. The Kaplan University associate's degree program is offered both online and at our Davenport campus. If you choose to enroll in the online program, you will complete an externship program in a physician's office or clinic, and gain valuable on-the-job experience preferred by many employers. Upon graduation, you'll display professional conduct, communicate effectively with personnel and patients, and know how to manage emergency situations. What's more, you'll be eligible to take the Certified Medical Administrative Specialist examination, given by the American Medical Technologists.* Medical Office Management degree program graduates find positions in doctor's offices, medical facilities, hospitals, insurance offices, pharmaceutical companies, and labs. As America's population continues to grow and age, the Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts tremendous growth for this occupation well into the next decade. *Although the program is designed to prepare students for various certification and licensing examinations, the University cannot guarantee students will pass the exams.
