Blending patient care with front-office duties, dental assistants play an important role in dentists’ offices.

Working in retail pharmacies, hospital settings, or even compounding pharmacies, pharmacy technicians help get people the medicine they need. Pharmacy technicians work with pharmacists to help fill prescriptions. In most states, technicians can compound or mix some medications and call physicians for prescription refill authorizations. While becoming a full pharmacist requires a doctoral degree, our Pharmacy Technology program in San Leandro can be completed in as few as nine months.
From Medicaid to private insurance to self-pay patients, making sure healthcare workers get paid for their services is an important part of the system. This, in addition to the increasing use of electronic health records, has led to the occupation of medical billers and coders. Medical billers and coders help record patient history in a code that can be read on electronic health records and understood by complex medical insurance carriers. They also help physicians and other medical professionals get paid by submitting bills to insurance carriers and following up until those bills are paid. Carrington’s Medical Billing and Coding program in San Leandro can be completed in as few as nine months for a certificate.
