Abstract

The Division of Lifelong Learning at Gloucester County College conducted a survey of medical offices in the county to determine what occupations they employed and what their projected employment need for those occupations was in the next three years. The purpose of the study was to determine if GCC should develop training programs for those occupations. GCC also wanted to provide training for occupations that would qualify for workforce development funding. Over 500 surveys were mailed to medical offices in the county and responses were received from 72 offices. The research data indicated there was a need for training by the healthcare providers for the occupations medical coding and billing and for medical administrator. The occupations of medical coding and billing and medical administrator were listed as "in demand" on the NJ Employment Information Website in 2003 which meant that persons pursuing training in those occupations could qualify for workforce development funding.
