Help bring efficiency to the medical profession
In the fast-growing medical field, job opportunities abound in hospitals, doctors’ offices, medical sales, and insurance industries. For each of these areas, employers seek office personnel with exceptional skills and a professional work ethic.
In PCC’s two-year medical office systems program, students prepare for success in the workplace with fundamental courses in medical office systems. Strong skills in keyboarding, filing systems, accounting, and the latest popular computer applications give graduates a tremendous advantage in the field. With extensive training in medical terminology and transcription, they can enter the workplace as confident and proficient medical office employees.
Academic requirements completed in this program also apply to the Bachelor of Science degree in medical office administration should a student want to further his studies with a four-year degree.
PCC’s medical office administration program definitely helped me transition from being a medical office worker to becoming a full-time medical transcriptionist. The typing, terminology, and English classes helped prepare me immensely. I now type and proof for a pulmonary group and a neurology group.

Recommended high school preparation
for a medical office systems concentration
is a keyboarding course in which
students learn proper technique and
develop speed and accuracy. Students
will take a placement exam to determine
a course best suited for their
skills. Opportunities are available to
make up keyboarding deficiencies. In
this case, time required to complete
a medical office systems concentration could
be expected to increase.
