“Career Step is dedicated to helping students improve their lives with required and relevant education for growing, in-demand careers,” said Career Step CEO Steve Tober. “Healthcare facilities nationwide are moving to electronic records, which are creating growing demand for professionals with training on electronic health records (EHR) software.

The Career Step Electronic Health Records Office Professional program prepares students to work in various healthcare facilities overseeing their electronic health records as well as general medical office administration.
