Is the Medical Secretary Plus Diploma for you?

Have you always wanted a Secretarial role but never knew what kind?  Often wondered what it would be like to work as a Medical Secretary?

Medical secretaries provide office support to hospital doctors by making appointments, dealing with patients’ queries and working closely with health professionals. They may also provide this support to GPs, health service managers and medical researchers. Medical secretaries can also be known as personal assistants.

To become a Medical Secretary you would generally need a Medical Secretary Diploma. Basic office skills and knowledge of medical terminology is essential for this type of career.  You should be able to use email, word processing software and spreadsheets, in addition to software used for record keeping and billing. Good interpersonal skills are a must. They will help you in your interaction with patients, doctors or other healthcare professionals, and colleagues. Good organizational skills are vital to the functioning of a medical office. Since a medical secretary often communicates with others in writing, he or she must be skilled in this area as well.

As you gain experience in this field you may progress to a career at Management level.
