Medical Receptionists & Secretaries
Since medical receptionists and secretaries perform administrative tasks to keep hospitals running smoothly, getting to know them will probably help your job run more smoothly as well.
“They work behind the scenes and are the gatekeepers with all the doctors and nurses,” says Anna Sirotin, a physical therapy doctorate student at the College of Mount St. Joseph. “If you get on their good side, they will be more then willing to help you with scheduling, the best time to reach the doctor, and work around your schedule.”
Medical receptionists and secretaries are also frequently privy to the inner workings of the hospital, and may know what’s happening before everyone else — making them a very good person to know.
