Job at hospital in medical records?
Im currently getting my assosiates in healthcare admin with emphasis in medical records. I DO NOT want to work from home or do billing and coding. I want to work in the med rocords dept. at the hospital or doc. office. I was told after my first semester in school i could get an entry level position or maybe internship. I want something more though to ensure this like a diploma or certificate on top of my degree. My school doesnt offer these and i saw some places online but Im not sure what to do. SO….Here are my questions…..
1. Where can i get an online certificate or diploma that will help (not degree).
2. what should the diploma/certificate be? like what would help, management skills, or what.
3.what ARE the academic requirements to get a job in the medical records office. can i really get hired while im still in school?
4. should i take extra classes, and if so, which ones?
Thanks! Ill give good points!
