Introduction

Founded in 1959, the Harris School of Business is now a subsidiary of the Premier Education Group. The Voorhees campus provides real-world training in four allied health fields, with day and evening classes available. The programs often come with an externship to complete the hands-on training. Graduates here receive an undergraduate certificate and all programs take less than a year and half to complete.

Academics

This campus currently provides four fast track programs focusing on the allied health industry. Students learn in the classroom with plenty of hands on training. Furthermore, the programs also typically include an externship, which works to promote real world practical experience under qualified professional personnel. Externship hours are set by the individual externship sites, meaning students have to adjust their schedule around these hours. Many programs do require an externship in order to graduate, and externships oftentimes require daytime hours.

Health Claims Specialist Plus

This program is 11 months long and by graduation students will be trained for an entry-level job as a billing and coding specialist. They will learn to investigate discrepancies, and handle patient inquiries about billing. The program will also help prepare students to take certification exams in this field to advance their careers.

Multi-Skilled Health Technician

After 7 months, students will graduate with the knowledge and training to handle cardiovascular technology and phlebotomy; how to administer electrocardiograms; and will learn to handle blood samples.

Professional Medical Assistant Plus

This is a jack-of-all-trades type of career in the a medical office – students will learn anatomy and physiology along with patient care, pharmacology, and how to run a medical office while effectively communicating with patients. This program takes 11 months to complete.

Surgical Technology

The longest program on campus at 14 months to completion, students here take this course to prepare for all of the procedures needed to work in an operating room with a surgeon and the rest of the surgical team.
