(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.

There are two 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.

This program leads to an Associate of Applied Science Degree and is preparatory for employment upon graduation from MGCCC. Where a transfer to 4-year college or university is desired, a conference should be scheduled with a MGCCC advisor.

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