Medical Information Technology graduates prepare medical records and reports, maintain files, order supplies, perform accounting procedures, work with medical insurance and coding, and receive patients in a variety of health care settings. Laboratory and classroom experiences are combined to prepare graduates for careers in health care facilities. Some of the diplomas include Medical Administrative Assistant, Medical Insurance Coder, and Medical Transcriptionist. Students enrolled in the degree or diploma programs are required to do an internship or cooperative experience in a medical office environment.
Progression in the Medical Information Technology program is contingent upon achievement of a grade of “C” or better in each course and maintenance of a 2.0 cumulative grade point average or better (on a 4.0 scale).
