Health Care Certificates

An online certificate degree in health care will provide the student with the basic skills necessary to enter this industry. Programs will focus on the areas of patient care and safety for those who want to work as health care providers.  A certificate degree in health care may also have a focus on the administrative side of the industry with courses in medical record keeping and medical coding. Kaplan University Online has a variety of options for those who want to earn a certificate in a particular area of health care such as case management, geriatric care management, or life care planning. The US Career Institute offers certificate programs in medical billing, personal home health care aide, and medical assistant along with several other choices.

A certificate degree in health care may be the right option for students who want to work in entry level positions to directly care for patients or those who want to work in an office setting within the industry. Research the education requirements for specific health care field careers at our health care career center page.

Students entering the workforce with a health care certificate will likely earn an hourly wage.  There is expected to be plenty of job opportunities in this area as the need for home health workers increases with the increase in the aging population.  Additional opportunities will be available to track the billing and care management of those patients.
