As a medical office assistant you will be the first person to meet and greet patients and staff upon entering the clinic. You will be required to possess a friendly and welcoming attitude with excellent communication skills. Medical office assistants are responsible for a variety of administrative and clerical duties necessary to run an organization efficiently. You serve as basis of communication within the office, as well as plan and schedule meetings and appointments, organize and maintain documents and files, manage projects, conduct research, and provide information by use of telephone, email, and postal service. Working within a medical office, you may be required to transcribe dictation and assist physicians or medical staff with reports, and conference proceedings. Most medical office staff need to be familiar with insurance rules, billing practices, and hospital or laboratory procedures according to their province.

My experience at Robetech Institute was great! Returning to school as a mature student was terrifying, but within a few hours of talking to the teachers, I felt at ease and knew I had made the right decision.
