Medical Assisting Training in Ohio

At Ohio Business College, we are proud to offer our medical assisting program that equips students with everything they need for success within the medical assisting profession. Medical assistants are key players in medical offices and facilities, offering a variety of skills and abilities to fill many different roles among a team.

Our Medical Assisting program provides students with the skills necessary to perform both front- and back-office functions in a medical setting. Medical assistants’ responsibilities range from front-office work such as appointment setting, telephone usage, insurance billing and coding, and transcribing physician notes, to back-office tasks such as assisting in taking vital signs, administering EKGs, assisting in minor office surgery, performing phlebotomy functions, and other duties associated with assisting medical professionals. Depending on the office in which a medical assistant works, they may be responsible for clinical or administrative duties, or a combination of both.

I was really nervous to go back to school. I was working two jobs to make ends meet and wasn't going anywhere without a degree. OBC was so flexible with my schedule and the staff took every opportunity to help me succeed. Because of their support, I was hired as a Clinical Lab Assistant at the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science. To this day, I continue to receive their support and encouragement as I strive towards my Master's Degree in Pathology Assisting. None of this would have been possible without the dedication and enthusiasm of OBC. ~ Gina Terry
