Why a Medical Office Manager?
A medical office management career is a good fit for those interested in managing others, being the boss, working in an office, helping others, variety, and challenges. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 303,000 medical and health services managers in 2010. Medical office managers are employed in organizations, such as
- Nursing homes
- Group medical practices
Medical businesses need employees to handle the daily business activities. They value employees with varied skills, including billing and coding knowledge, financial management, policy and procedure development, and employee management. As the large baby-boom population ages and people remain active longer, it is no surprise that this career has very strong growth potential in the coming years.
