Typing Skills (Excerpt From Steps to Becoming a Medical Secretary)


When I applied for the job as a medical secretary, I had to take a typing test. Now I already knew how to type because I am a writer, but I still had to take the test. And depending on the company you are applying to, you may have to meet a 35-wpm typing requirement. 

The typing test will measure your typing speed, your proficiency, your comprehension, and your spelling. The typing test may also test your knowledge of Word and Excel.

This is necessary because you may be called upon to type up memos or flyers or to track and input information into a spreadsheet.

Also, many hospitals are going paperless, so knowing how to work a computer is a must.
