Want to work in the medical field as a secretary?

​The medical secretary is often responsible for working specialist's rooms as well as in the hospital environment carrying out a variety of tasks.

Medical terminology is essential for tasks including audio typing of letters, reports, medical records and ward clerk positions.

Learning medical terminology in a fun and interesting way will be an integral part of this course.

We will also introduce students to the medical package Genie, a popular software package for specialists, in conjunction with an audio tyrping package Express Scribe. Students will learn how to set up Genie for simple audio transcription and the opportunity to explore at-home transcription work with organisations such as Transcribe Me! and OzeScribe.

A specialists medical secretary may also supervise reception staff and therefore a knowledge of reception duties as well as medical administrative skills are imperative.
