Glendale Career College Launches Medical Assistant and Medical Insurance Biller and Coder Programs at San Diego Campus
Conversation to Center on Staying Safe While Working as a Health Care Professional During the COVID-19 Pandemic Along with Outlook on Future Opportunities in Health Care
SAN DIEGO, Calif.—Students interested in attending Glendale Career College (GCC)’s San Diego Campus now have two additional learning opportunities to choose from as GCC adds the Medical Assistant and the Medical Insurance Biller and Coder programs to its list of offerings. Classes are currently enrolling for these new programs, which will offer the same dynamic learning environment GCC is so well known for.
“Bringing the Medical Assistant and Medical Insurance Biller and Coder programs to the College’s San Diego Campus addresses a growing need in the community for well-trained health care professionals,” explained Chief Operating Officer Beylor Meza. “We are excited to be able to offer these training options for individuals who want to enter and advance in the health care field.”
From measuring patients’ vital signs to administering injections and preparing medical supplies, Medical Assistants work on the front lines of patient care. Coming alongside physicians and registered nurses in doctor’s offices, clinics, and other facilities, they comprise a crucial part of the health care team. A growing aging population with a greater demand for medical services translates to an increasing demand for trained Medical Assistants.
Medical Insurance Billers and Coders also play a vital role in health care offices as they are responsible for documenting and recording patients’ health information, including medical histories, symptoms, test results, treatments, and other information about health care services provided to patients. Not responsible for direct patient care, they instead work regularly with physicians, registered nurses, and other health care professionals to ensure patient records are complete and accurate. A growing demand for health care services brings with it a greater need for Medical Insurance Billers and Coders to manage and organize the rapidly increasing amount of health care data.
As with all Glendale Career College programs, these two new offerings follow the College’s hallmark practical approach to training students. Individuals will experience classroom instruction paired with hands-on learning opportunities—all designed to cement their knowledge and skills and better prepare them for the World of Work.
“The Medical Assistant and Medical Insurance Biller and Coder programs demonstrate GCC’s ongoing commitment to changing lives through quality education.” Meza shared. “We can’t wait to see the difference these graduates will have on their communities as they provide excellent care and service to their patients.”
