Diploma in Medical Billing Administrative Specialist

The Medical Billing and Administrative Specialist program at Sanford-Brown is designed to provide students with the appropriate didactic theory and skills required to begin a career in office administration and management within a health care setting.

The courses are grouped around knowledge and skills required for an administrative role in a medical practice. The program should also prepare students for responsibilities including insurance coding, processing, medical administrative procedures and regulatory requirements of the health care delivery system. Courses are not necessarily offered in the sequences in which they appear in the catalog. Also, students will typically, but not always, be taught by more than one instructor during their program of study.

After the didactic portion of their program, students are required to complete a supervised externship at a medical facility or office that includes competencies, logs and evaluations completed by the student. At the completion of the program, graduates who have diligently attended class and their externship, studied, and practiced their skills should have the necessary skills to seek entry-level employment in an administrative role in a medical setting.
