Like so many parts of Canada, Manitoba is experiencing increasing demands on its health care system.
As the population ages, we're seeing labour shortages for a wide range of health care jobs—spanning everything from physiotherapists to family physicians to orderlies to medical office staff.

For many people, finding a quick college training program that leads directly to paid work is a top priority. And there are several good reasons students are drawn to condensed certificates and diplomas—like cheaper tuition, shorter disruption to work and family life, and a much faster start to a career.
But when we think of health care careers, it's not fast training programs that come to mind. Doctors, nurses, and other clinicians spend years earning an education. Most people assume that meaningful work in health care takes a huge investment of time and money on training.
Medical office administrators (MOAs) fulfil a challenging and multifaceted role in today's clinics and hospitals. They work closely with doctors and nurses, help serve patients, and play a vital part in keeping the medical office running smoothly.
