A rewarding career in the healthcare industry doesn’t only mean hands-on patient care. Medical Office Specialists are found in nearly every healthcare environment. Pursue your medical career by training to work in physicians’ offices, hospitals, clinics, long-term care centers, dental offices, public health agencies and so much more. Job duties are varied and are vital to the smooth operation of medical facilities. Greeting patients, scheduling appointments, completing and submitting insurance forms, communicating to patients about labs, reviewing and working through appeals from insurance denials, authorizations and pre-authorizations are all the responsibilities of a Medical Office Specialist.
