Medical Secretary Courses & Diplomas

When considering developing your career in administration and secretarial roles, a Medical Secretary course is a great stepping stone – helping you to progress in a fascinating environment.

When considering developing your career in administration and secretarial roles, a Medical Secretary course with Pitman Training is a great stepping stone. Many of our students have taken these courses having worked in administration and secretarial roles in a completely different sector - but seeking a new challenge they wanted to focus on a niche. The medical sector is a buzzing, fascinating environment to work within, and it can be quite competitive to enter this industry. A qualification from Pitman Training, which is respected by employers, can help you make this transition. 

Highly skilled medical secretaries will always be in demand, and taking the time to gain a professionally recognised certification is certain to greatly improve your employment prospects.

Within the medical sector one of the fundamental skills which is most advantageous to have is a good grasp of Medical Terminology - something which is obviously a bit alien if you have never worked in this sector. Our Medical Secretary training offers you the opportunity to gain not only excellent secretarial skills, but also knowledge of the processes and frequently used terminology used within the medical sector. Our courses are recognised by employers as providing a strong grounding for an applicant looking for a career as a Medical Secretary. 

The medical profession is a challenging sector where discretion, patience, sensitivity and an unwavering eye for detail are essential skills. Our Medical Secretary and Administration courses will teach you all the vital skills you need to act as a link between patient and doctor. You’ll learn how to integrate the theory of highly- technical medical terminology, complete a complex array of administrative and technical tasks, in the most accurate and timely manner, including compiling confidential letters, typing reports for patient records, assisting with medical journals and keeping the once running efficiently.

Our Medical Secretary and Administrative courses offer you the best of both worlds – business and medical. You’ll also get the specialist expertise required to work within the medical profession, becoming proficient in medical audio-typing and medical word processing. We also offer additional courses which will enable you to master Microsoft programmes, to compliment your medical skills.

As with all our training, you can study at a Pitman Training centre near you so you are based in a local learning environment, supported by tutors, or, if preferred, you could study our Medical Secretary training courses online on our Pitman Campus.
