(Springfield, MO) Bryan University announced today the Medical Office Assistant program is now available to students desiring to complete the program through online education. The program, designed to be completed in 40 weeks, prepares students to sit for the Medical Administrative Specialist national certification exam and for non-clinical work in a medical office environment.
“For the better part of two decades Bryan University has been offering allied health training to students. The advent of this program being delivered wholly by our online division is an adaptation to how we believe students are learning and preparing for careers,” said Michael Sowers, Executive Director for Bryan University Online. “We have had students at our ground campuses benefit from this 40-week diploma in an effort to gain career skills in a shorter period of time.”
The program features training in computer applications, medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, medical law and ethics, basic insurance, medical billing & coding, and electronic medical records. Bryan University is a partner with the American Medical Technologists and this program prepares students for the national certification exam, Medical Administrative Specialist. “We serve students across the country who don’t live near a Bryan University campus and this program, having a 100% online option, allows us to reach more folks interested in entry-level health career training,” said Bryan University Dean, Dr. Jacquelyn Harris. “I have been working in clinics since 1992 and am proud that we are offering this program and of our relationship with AMT.”
