In our previous blog, we covered the other three career training programs offered at NCC, so it seems fitting to discuss the remaining one today: Healthcare Administration.
What are the responsibilities of this job?
Health care administrators are generally in charge of the other medical office assistants, acting as a supervisor. This includes managing health information systems, filing patient paperwork, doing front desk duties, communicating with insurance companies, maintaining financial records, and keeping other workers on task.
What sort of student chooses healthcare administrative positions?
Unlike the other programs, this career is best for students who already have experience in the healthcare and medical fields and are looking for career advancement. If you previously worked or are currently employed as a medical assistant or office specialist, consider attending National Career College courses in order to earn a promotion and raise.
Although medical employment is recommended for these courses, it is not required. Other qualified candidates include:
- People with administrative experience in another field
- Responsible workers capable of handling a staff and administrative duties
- Inspired individuals wanting to start a lucrative new career!
What topics do NCC courses cover?
Along with reviewing administrative duties, our programs also cover medical topics, such as terminology, anatomy, and physiology, which allow you to communicate with doctors, nurses, and other staff members.
We also provide courses in electronic medical recordkeeping (EMR), medical coding and billing, and computer filing. These are near-universal skills that can be applied to any health care business or facility.
What happens after graduation?
After the yearlong course, we arrange for our students to receive hands-on training in their field. For an administrator, this could take place in a doctor’s office, hospital, or health insurance building.
Our courses are designed to increase the likelihood of employment and promotion. Even if you do not initially get hired into your desired position, you will have the necessary skills to prove your value and receive a promotion.
