Accredited Colleges Offering Medical Office Administration Degrees

Individuals working in the field of medical office administration must learn how to manage medical establishments according to good business practices. These individuals must oversee a variety of operations within a medical office, or even within an entire hospital, depending on the level of administration. In supervisory roles, administrators are responsible for the performance and standards of care in their unit. Overall, the most important task is making sure that health care is being delivered to patients according to policy and ethical standards.

Medical office administrators must adapt to continuously changing needs based on technological advances and new information. Healthcare is being delivered in new ways, preventative care is becoming a focus, and changing legislation creates a need for new policies or budgets. Medical office administrators may also specialize in different areas such as clinical management or health information management.

In terms of the work environment, medical office administrators will typically split their time between a private office and visiting individuals around the facility. They tend to work very long hours that can be stressful but very rewarding. Since most of the facilities that medical office administrators work at run twenty-four hours a day, they may have to handle emergencies or unexpected dilemmas at odd hours. In general, they typically work full time or forty hours per week. There is little travel involved in this job -- only for occasional meetings and seminars.
