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 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.
