Online Medical Technology Degrees and Careers


Medical services are one of the largest industries in the U.S. Medical technology is a very important field within healthcare services. It includes administrative jobs such as medical insurance and coding, and clinical support, such as medical assisting.

As a medical technician, you can work both with patients and behind the scenes. Because of the interaction with patients, you must have good interpersonal communication and verbal skills. You must also handle data and be familiar with medical terminology.

Many positions within medical technology require special certificates or degrees, since they essentially keep up the business functions of the doctor's office or clinic. For example, people with jobs in, medical assisting, medical transcription, and medical insurance and coding must have the knowledge and expertise to execute their duties with efficiency and accuracy.

You must have adequate office skills, be familiar with coding, medical paperwork, and data entry, as well as appropriate medical protocol. Continuing education is a key component of a successful career in this growing field.
