The first batch of medical secretaries successfully completed their training on July 6, 2010 from The Sankara Nethralaya Academy(TSNA). The ‘Short Term Course in Medical Secretary’ provided the medical secretaries with a comprehensive understanding of the nuances of writing reports, articles, billing insurance and order supplies and trained them in performing highly specialized secretarial duties.
Sankara Nethralaya Chairman Emeritus Dr. S S Badrinath expressed his pleasure in the inclusive training provided to the candidates and the “positive approach” adopted by the candidates following the course.
The Medical Secretary course has been designed to meet the demands for well-trained and competent medical secretaries in hospitals. An array of topics, including anatomy & physiology, medical terminology, introduction to hospital management & information system, communication skills, public relations, case studies and telephonic etiquettes of the various supportive service departments, are taught to candidates during the course.
Training for the next batch will commence from September 2010.
