Medical Office Administration & Professional Programs

Prepare for a new career sooner than you think

Medical Office Administrators play key roles behind the scenes, helping manage the administrative services from day-to-day operations to greeting patients to billing and records management, and engaging with insurance providers.


Being a Medical Office Administrator (MOA) can mean you get a chance to be the “jack of all trades” or the “fixer” that keeps the office going with day-to-day duties. The day of a MOA can be fast-paced, highly diverse and often chaotic dealing with billing, greeting patients, processing claims and maintaining records.


Train for a Healthcare Career that Helps Keeps things Running

Medical Office Administration courses at Concorde Career College focus on such topics as managing daily office operations and finances, as well as being the “middle man” between patients and insurance providers. You’ll have the convenience of online learning for several campuses with Concorde's Online Learning offered by Concorde's Kansas City campus and the opportunity to strengthen your confidence, knowledge and skills with a local in-person externship coordinated through the local area campus.
