Wondering what it's like to become a medical office administrator (MOA)? Want to know more about training, careers, and getting started in this field?

Who better to talk to than Priscilla Grant? Priscilla recently completed the Medical Office Administrator program at Herzing College Ottawa.

She went straight into a full-time medical office position after graduation, and has transitioned very smoothly into her new career.

We interviewed Priscilla earlier this month to learn more about her story, and see how things are going at work.

Find out what Priscilla thought of Herzing's MOA program, her most and least favourite parts of training, and how she landed such a great job at Carefor Health and Community Services.
