The perfect introduction into the front office environment of the healthcare industry
Medical Front Office jobs can look different depending on the type of healthcare environment you work in, but you should expect daily patient interaction and performing any administrative task that supports the medical office. Some of those tasks could include records and information management, basic coding, financial management, appointment scheduling and both in-person and telephone customer service.
We believe everyone should have access to higher education. With the option to pay in full, break down payments or utilize government grant funding, we help expand that access.

“MedCerts is an excellent online school to attend. You have full 24 hours a day access to log into your classes/ 7 days a week. At your own convenience. The courses are broken down into several sections for easy learning. For example, the course that am currently enrolled in, Medical Front Office & Administration, is broken down into 4-sections for a better understanding of this entire course of study. You are given a course schedule that tells you when you should be starting the next week of lessons, if you finished up early with week 1 then you were able to go ahead and start week 2, because you are working at your own pace. I highly recommend that you give MedCerts a chance.”
