What our students had to say
“I started the Introduction to Medical Secretary Course with Pitman’s in January 2011. I found the course very interesting and am pleased to say that I passed the course with distinction in June 2011.
While doing the course I applied for a post as a Medical Secretary through an agency, thinking that even if I didn’t get the job then at least the interview was going to be an experience, as I hadn’t had an interview for such a long time! I went to the agency and had to sit some tests with them first before they put me through for an interview for the job. I am pleased to say that I was successful in getting the post and am working as a Medical Secretary in a Hospital in Edinburgh. I didn’t expect to get the job as I was still in the middle of my course but I managed to finish the course before I started my job.
Since starting the role I have learnt that my course has been invaluable, especially the medical terminology and how to set out medical letters, etc.
I found the tutors at Pitman’s very helpful and approachable. Doing the Pitman’s training was very flexible and fitted in well with my lifestyle at the time. I would certainly recommend this course to anyone looking to have a career as a Medical Secretary and hope to return to Pitman’s one day.” CS
