At National Career College in Los Angeles, we have specialists who provide career training in the medical and dental fields. These positions do not require a PhD or graduate degree for employment, but having job-specific training will greatly increases your odds of getting hired.
Here are the professions in which we train students, along with a brief description of each:
Medical Office Specialist
In this career, you will be in charge of administrative duties, such as front desk management, filing patient paperwork, and dealing with medical billing and bookkeeping. NCC teaches typing skills, introduces students to filing programs, explains basic insurance billing procedures, and show you proper etiquette when interacting with patients at the front desk.
A Medical Assistant’s duties often fall somewhere between the office specialist and a nurse; she must be a jack-of-all-trades. Along with patient paperwork filing and front desk duties, the assistant is asked to help the doctor with her duties, like checking vital signs, asking for patient information, and running basic laboratory tests. NCC prepares you with a wide array of courses, from Medical Terminology to Medical Office Finance.
Dental Lab Technician
NCC began as a school for dental assistants, teaching students how to operate the newest machinery in the dentistry field. Although we have expanded, we are still one of only a few colleges offering such advanced dental training courses in Los Angeles. In particular, our CAD/CAM program is well-renowned within the dental community for graduating students who are proficient in the technology and ready for employment. We will train you with multiple technologies designed to create molds of teeth for patients.
