Great for NHS and private practice jobs!
Working in the medical sector is very rewarding, but can be hard work. Often, you will have to create professional looking documents and reports, and without the right word processing skills you can make things hard for yourself.
This short Medical Secretarial course will teach you all the tricks of the trade, and help you to organise your documents, format texts, tables and images, and arrange and re-order data in the most time efficient way.
Medical Word Processing is a self-paced course, and can be studied at one of our training centres in London (Holborn, Notting Hill, Croydon) or from home via distance learning, where you will receive full support from our friendly training team as you make your way through the course.
