Have a Lasting CAREER IN HEALTHCARE
In short, as a Medical Secretary you handle all the administrative tasks required to keep doctor’s offices, hospital units, and allied health facilities running smoothly; and that’s no small job.
You work with doctors, providers, and patients. You manage everything from medical records, insurance approvals, coding, billing, and third-party reimbursement to preparing letters, reports, scheduling patient medical tests, hospital admissions, and much more.
What’s more, MEDICAL SECRETARY is on the 2019 High Priority Occupation (HPO) List for Philadelphia County. The list serves as a guide for the public to align training and education investments with occupations that are in demand by employers, have higher skill needs, and are most likely to provide family-sustaining wages.
