“Attending OBC taught me a lot of wonderful skills that I have been able to apply to my current job. The classes that are involved in the Medical Administrative Assistant program made me familiar with the work I have to do in the office – tasks such as entering patient information, seeing insurance claims, answering the phoine, and dealing with patients. I loved OBC! The staff is wonderful!!”
