Medical office administrators use their knowledge of anatomy, physiology, medical terminology and procedures to communicate effectively with doctors, nurses, and patients in a range of clinical settings. These skilled professionals are also expert organizers, comfortable with the latest computer systems, software, and record-keeping protocols to ensure the smooth running of the medical office. From managing appointments to taking stock of inventory, medical office administrators are truly the backbone of any clinic or hospital.
