(Jefferson Davis Campus)

The Medical Office Technology programs provide training for career opportunities in private physician offices, clinics, hospitals, nursing homes, and other health care facilities.

This program leads to an Associate of Applied Science Degree and is preparatory for employment upon graduation from MGCCC. Where a transfer to a senior college or university is desired, a conference should be scheduled with a community college advisor for advisement.

There are two programs options in the Medical Office Technology program. The Medical Billing and Coding program prepares the successful completer for employment in the field of patient billing and medical insurance coding. The Medical Transcription program prepares the successful completer for employment in the field of medical transcription of patient records.

All students completing a career and technical program must complete either the MS-CPAS (Mississippi Career Planning and Assessment System) or a MGCCC Board-approved Technical Attainment Assessment where applicable. See your advisor for further details.
