Medical Front Office Overview

The Medical Front Office program is designed to develop and strengthen office skills for a medical setting. The curriculum prepares students to work in entry-level office positions in a variety of health care settings with skills in medical terminology, medical office procedures and medical software applications.

How to Get Started

Complete the admissions process and meet with an academic advisor at the college you plan to attend.

Prior to registration for any semester, you must contact a Brookhaven Medical Front Office faculty member to discuss recommended criteria.

Information Sessions

If you’re considering applying for this program, attend an information session, where the award, schedule and estimated expenses will be discussed in detail. For times and locations, contact program coordinator Sharon Burton or check the online schedule. During this information session, the program coordinator will help you determine which courses you should take.

Criteria for Enrollment

For successful preparation and future employment in a medical front office setting, we recommend that you have the following:

  • A high school diploma or GED
  • A minimum of 35 words-per-minute keyboarding skills
  • A certificate in a related area (such as office assistant, software specialist or administrative assistant), an associate degree or acquired certification, or office work experience

Tuition

Dallas County residents pay $177 per three-hour class — that is $59 per credit hour, or just $708 for a full-semester load of 12 credit hours.

Compare that to what you’d pay elsewhere! See our tuition rates for tuition according to your place of residency.

Rising Star Program

If you are a Dallas County high school graduating senior, you may qualify for Rising Star funds to help pay for this program. The Rising Star program offers academic support services and up to $4,000 for tuition and books, if you have established financial need.

Courses Offered (Curriculum)

All courses are offered as on-campus day and evening courses at Brookhaven College, or may be taken entirely online. Please note that the program is listed as Medical Office Management/Administration, formerly under Brookhaven College’s Business Office Systems and Support (BOSS) program.
