Earning a degree isn’t always required to become a medical office administrator (or administrative assistant), although applicants holding an associate degree may have an edge over those with only a certificate or no formal training at all.
Herzing’s diploma program in medical office administration, typically completed in as little as 1 year, is built to help you get the education you need to earn your first professional job in medical office administration.
