Monroe Community College is introducing a cohort-based medical office assistant certificate program on its downtown campus to help support the growth of the field, officials said. Employment for medical office assistants is estimated to increase by 11 percent in the next 10 years.
Jobs include administrative assistants, medical records and health information technicians, and medical record coders.
MCC’s program focuses on building a supportive community of students who use peers as resources, and one that encourages discussion and collaboration.
The program is offered through MCC’s Information and Computer Technologies Department. Classes start Sep. 5. A traditional medical office assistant certificate program is offered at the Brighton Campus, officials said. The deadline to register for the fall semester is Aug. 30.
Information sessions on the program will be held at 1 p.m. on Tuesday and Aug. 1 at MCC’s Applied Technologies Center based at 2485 W. Henrietta Road in Brighton.
