Program Information

 

  • Students learn computer applications and quality medical documentation using medical terminology, language arts, voice recognition, and office procedures.
  • Most credits transfer into the Office Administration - Medical Administrative degree program.
  • Recommendations
  • The prerequisite for OFC 214 is OFC 113. Students who have not achieved the skill level equivalent to OFC 113 should consult with the program director.
  • A student who is unable to fit MAA 209 into the last spring semester should consult with the Program Coordinator about substituting the 3-credit CED 210 (Cooperative Work Experience I).
