Medical Office Administration (Associate's)

Associate's Degree

With an associate's degree in Medical Office Administration from the online programs offered through Virginia College, you can prepare yourself for a healthcare career performing administrative duties in a medical office or clinic—reporting directly to an office manager, physician or other health practitioner.

Medical office administrators often assist in communicating with patients and other providers, billing insurance companies and more. These professionals also work closely with doctors to organize and monitor activities in a variety of healthcare settings. In short, they are a vital part of the healthcare team in a physician's office, clinic, hospital, long-term care facility or other medical office.

An important part of the Medical Office Administration associate's degree program is the externship. In this phase of the program, you will go out into an employer's workplace to get hands-on, real-world experience in a healthcare setting.

At Virginia College, you take courses that pertain to—and are geared toward—helping you to achieve success in the workforce. Because we understand and work with employers closely, we know the training you need to become successful in your career. You will have classes in:
