Health Unit Coordinator

Health Unit Coordinator Program Description:

Medical-Transcription-–-Scribe-ProgramThis course is designed to prepare the health unit coordinator student to facilitate the activities of people in a health unit to work together smoothly and harmoniously in a common action, which is the delivery of health care to patients. Students will learn management of information, communication, medical terminology, critical thinking and cultural diversity. Students will learn to transcribe physician orders.

Students with skills in health unit coordinating will be prepared to work in a variety of health care settings.

Comment: We believe that health unit coordinating will be a profession that is attractive to the new wave of health care workers. A recent Health Care Advisory Board analysis of the number of inpatient beds needed to care for our aging population indicates that we will face a shortage of beds in the future. The analysis indicates that the need for beds is growing every year. These additional beds will increase the number of health unit coordinators needed in the workforce.

Certification Note:Upon successful completion of the program students may take the national certification exam administered by the National Association of Health Unit Clerks/Coordinators (NAHUC).
