Most employers require medical secretaries to have a high school
diploma and be able to type between 60 and 90 words per minute. In
order to handle more specialized duties, you must be familiar with
medical terms and procedures and be able to use medical software
programs. In addition, you need to have basic math skills and
strong written and verbal communication skills to write up
correspondence and handle patient inquiries. English, speech, and
health classes will help you prepare for this career.
