Medical Record Technicians
If you are contemplating a career in medical records, you should
take as many high school English classes as possible, because
technicians need both written and verbal communication skills to
prepare reports and communicate with other health care personnel.
Basic math or business math is very desirable because statistical
skills are important in some job functions. Biology and health
courses will help familiarize you with the terminology that medical
record technicians use. Other science courses, computer training,
typing, and office procedures are also helpful.
