Thoughts from anyone in the healthcare field about something like this? Cost is about $2300, it's offered from my alma mater and a little more advanced coursework-wise than local community colleges...I'm a career changer with a prior master's degree in public service management...have been involved in the HC field as an end user , volunteer and occasional employee for many years. The other day I walked into a doctor's office and had an 'aha' moment: I could see myself working there.

Not interested in anything more clinical/hands-on (i.e. nursing) for other reasons, among them the time/$ commitment and a chronic medical condition that might limit my ability to do certain jobs. Our future plans may include moving to KY or back to FL, so I could also see this being more transferable (?)...

If not Administrative Medical Specialist (AMS), what about other certificates listed?
Thanks in advance for any replies!

Your local community college would be the absolute FIRST place to look and can give you information related to Health Information Technology, Medical Office Administration, etc at substantially less $$.
