Medical and Health Records Technology Careers: General Info

Most hospitals, doctors offices and other health care providers are using modern technology to digitize, organize, search and secure their obsolete patient records. Even those with previous experience in medical and health records technology may need to learn new skills and techniques in an associate's degree program or in a non-degree career certification. In these programs, students study modern computer scanning technologies and optical character recognition (OCR) software packages. These are the technologies that make large scale digitization of patient charts and records possible. As part of their training, medical record technologists must also study professional ethics and legal issues related to medical record keeping. Most medical records technologists interact with doctors, nurses and even patients on a daily basis and must have excellent people skills as well as outstanding communication skills and the ability to multitask efficiently.

Doctoral Degree Programs: General Information

Doctoral degree programs are the most advanced courses of study offered by most American universities. Some programs offer simultaneous master's and doctoral degrees, while others require students to complete a master's degree first. Other programs may be started directly following completion of the undergraduate degree. Doctoral degree programs are made up of courses, often called seminars, where topics are investigated at a much greater depth than in undergraduate classes. Many doctoral candidates teach undergraduate classes or assist professors in preparing for their classes. Most doctoral degree programs also require completion of a dissertation. A dissertation is an extended essay that requires extensive research and exhaustive preparation. In order to complete the program, the candidate must submit his or her dissertation to faculty members for review.
