3 Great Healthcare Jobs In 2 Years Or Less: Medical Receptionist Courses And More

February 25, 2017 Posted by kyu7

You were the kind of kid that was always putting bandages on your teddy bears. You’d like to work in health care, but know that medical school isn’t for you. Here are three community college programs to jump-start your career in health.

Medical receptionist courses

Medical receptionist courses prepare students to work in a variety of establishments, including, but not limited to:

birthing centres
medical clinics
hospitals
long-term care homes
bodywork clinics
mental health facilities

Medical receptionist courses introduce students to many of the tasks they are likely to encounter on the job, such as:

appointment scheduling
medical recordkeeping
filling out insurance forms
billing clients
preparing examination rooms
contacting pharmacies regarding prescriptions

Medical terminology is also a big part of the curriculum in most medical receptionist courses.

Takeaway: Because graduates of medical receptionist courses fulfill a range of responsibilities, they must, above all else, be adaptable.

Medical office assistant courses

Want a career with a slightly more medical orientation? Consider taking medical office assistant courses instead of receptionist courses.

Graduates of medical office assistant courses work in many of the same settings as their counterparts in receptionist courses, namely:

birthing centres
medical clinics
hospitals
long-term care homes

In medical office assistant courses, you will learn to perform many of the same duties as you would in other receptionist courses, but with some additional tasks, including:

assisting medical professionals during patient exams
draping patients
patient education
disinfecting medical equipment

Takeaway: Graduates of medical office assistant courses must, above all else, be organized and detail-oriented.

Personal support worker (PSW) courses

PSW courses prepare students to work in:

long-term care homes
senior residences
public hospitals
family homes

PSW courses teach students how to provide patients with support so that they can accomplish everyday tasks. This means helping patients in poor health or with otherwise limited mobility:

get in and out of their beds
eat
access the toilet or a commode
manage their various medications
attend physical therapy appointments

PSW courses also teach students how to assist patients:

on outings
in exercise classes

Takeaway: Graduates of PSW courses must, above all else, love helping people

If you’re enthused by the idea of working in a medical job, call a community college today to find out how you can be making a difference in patients’ lives in a clinic, hospital or home in a relatively short period of time.
