Wisconsin Healthcare Careers

Patient access scheduler or medical secretary

Patient access schedulers or medical secretaries perform secretarial duties using specific knowledge of medical terminology and hospital, clinic or laboratory procedures. Duties may include scheduling appointments, billing patients, and compiling and recording medical charts, reports and correspondence.

The median annual pay is $41,830 per year in Wisconsin, and it is expected that the need for this position will decline in the next 10 years.

A high school diploma or equivalent is required to become a patient access scheduler or medical secretary.

Most work full-time. Because health care facilities are open around the clock, individuals in these positions may work nights, weekends and holidays.

You may be a good fit for this opportunity if you excel in speaking, active listening, service orientation and social perceptiveness.
