Every student has a medical team at their fingertips: Amsterdam, Broadway, Riverside, or Morningside campus teams to name a few. You also have a choice to work with different physicians, registered nurses, and pediatricians with that team as well. Some students may choose to become an ER nurse or work in the intensive care unit. A medical assistants or technician has the choice to become a medical office manager, medical biller, pharmacy technician, radiology assistant, pharmacy tech, or even a surgical technologist depending on their education level and career goals.
The clinical skills and knowledge needed to be a good Healthcare Manager, Manger, and Medical Services Manager will be learned while in school. Those programs require the student to complete both the Health Services Manager course as well as a Managerial Accounting class. While in school, students can pursue specific courses such as Medical Office Management, Medical Office Administration, Medical Office Law, Medical Office Security, or Medical Office Finance. All these classes help prepare students to be prepared for what they need to know once out in the workforce.
In addition to healthcare facilities, students may also complete a medical research internship. This internship will assist with building a strong resume and demonstrating medical knowledge and experience to potential employers, while gaining valuable experience for their future career goals. Many hospitals, clinics, doctor’s offices, and other healthcare facilities want to hire individuals that are willing to complete a medical research internship as well as complete various medical services research courses.
