Medical office managers serve an important administrative position for any large scale medical company. They normally oversee a single medical office, but in some cases, they can also oversee multiple locations within the same company, such as multiple hospitals or medical clinics. If a physician opens a private practice, they will most likely hire a medical office manager in order to streamline the functions the physician must perform. Much like a manager for any other area, medical office managers oversee the day-to-day operations of their office, including taking incoming calls, managing schedules for employees and patients, and managing and organize paperwork, expenses and accounts receivable.
