Medical Office Administration is a popular field of study here at Cambria-Rowe Business College. Many of our students choose to obtain an associate’s degree from our business college in this particular field because the healthcare industry is continuing to grow at a fast pace, providing numerous job opportunities across the country. Additionally, this field of study allows a great deal of flexibility in job choice. Here are a few of the possible careers you could pursue with this degree.
Medical Records Clerk
If you’re a highly organized person, you might consider using your associate’s degree from CRBC to become a medical records clerk. As a medical records clerk, it’ll be your responsibility to maintain patient files and statistics, and to fulfill requests for patient records. These days, most patient files are maintained electronically. Electronic Medical Records (EMR) enable healthcare professionals to readily track patient data, determine when patients are due for a checkup or vaccination, and improve the quality of healthcare.
If you prefer to work directly with people rather than devoting your time to recordkeeping, then perhaps you’d like to use your associate’s degree to land a job as a medical assistant. Medical assistants must have excellent people skills. They work along with physicians to interact with patients and put them at ease. As a medical assistant, you’ll take medical histories, prepare patients for exams, inform patients of procedures, perform basic tests, draw blood, remove sutures, and more. Becoming a medical assistant is an excellent way to work directly with patients without having to go through the rigors of medical school.

When you graduate from Cambria-Rowe Business College, your associate’s degree in accounting, business administration, or another field will help you launch a successful career. However, many of our graduates choose to pursue a bachelor’s degree after earning their associate’s degree. If you wish to further your education and increase your job opportunities, consider taking advantage of CRBC’s agreements with two area colleges. Our arrangement with Saint Francis University and Mount Aloysius College means that you can easily transfer to those schools upon graduation, with no need to change your current curriculum or commit to an early transfer decision.
Transferring to Saint Francis University
If you choose to pursue a bachelor’s degree at Saint Francis University after obtaining your associate’s degree, you’ll need to meet certain requirements. This option is available to students who have obtained a degree in accounting, business administration, management, or medical office administration. Saint Francis University guarantees acceptance for CRBC grads who have maintained a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5. You’ll also have your application fee waived. Our business college’s Artriculation Agreement with Saint Francis University includes additional financial incentives. If you’ve earned at least a 3.0 GPA, you’ll be guaranteed an academic scholarship for transfer students.
Transferring to Mount Aloysius College
The Artriculation Agreement between CRBC and Mount Aloysius College is available to students who have earned an associate’s degree in accounting, business administration, legal assisting, management, or medical office administration. If this applies to you and you have maintained a GPA of at least 2.0, you’ll be accepted into the junior class at Mount Aloysius College.
We encourage current and prospective students of Cambria-Rowe Business College to contact our Director of Education to discuss transferring to either of these colleges upon graduation. You can contact us at (888) 442-0437 or read more about transferring on our website.

Earning your associate’s degree from a business college can significantly increase your job opportunities. However, the job search process still takes quite a bit of effort in today’s economy. Even before you graduate from your business college, it’s a good idea to start working on your resume and interviewing skills. Take advantage of your two-year college’s career services department for resources on improving your resume. You can also find tips for making your resume stand out from the countless others hiring managers must sort through below.
Customize Your Resume
Although you should work on your resume before you graduate with an associate’s degree, it’s best to tweak it each time you submit it to a hiring manager. Tailor the document for the job to which you’re applying. For example, if you’re applying to a job as a medical office administrator for a geriatric care facility, you should emphasize any relevant experience or training you’ve received in that area. Additionally, read the job posting several times and identify key buzzwords and phrases. Use those buzzwords in your resume. Many larger companies use applicant tracking software to screen resumes for those phrases; if your resume contains them, your resume is more likely to lead the pack.
Make It Easy to Read
Hiring managers must look through countless piles of resumes for each job opening. They often scan the documents, rather than reading each one thoroughly. Keep the format of your resume clean and easy to read. Avoid including flashy logos, graphics, and charts. Limit your resume to no more than one page.
Use Your Networking Skills
Networking is an essential part of a successful job search. Attend any relevant mixers, conferences, and similar events for your chosen industry. Keep in touch with your classmates from your business college, as they could one day work at a company to which you’re applying for a job. If you do have a contact within the company, ask that person if he or she is willing to endorse you.
