Why Choose the Health Unit Coordinator Program?
Health unit coordinators are an integral and valuable part of the medical team, providing such services as transcribing physicians' orders, scheduling diagnostic studies and appointments for follow-up care, ordering and maintaining supplies, and maintaining clerical and patient records. Students participate in realistic training in the classroom and clinical settings, learning the competencies needed in communications, human relations, anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, and unit management. As the communicator for the hospital unit, it is essential that the health unit coordinator has the ability to read, write, understand and speak English, and to speak clearly to communicate instructions, directions, and telephone contacts. Our Health Unit Coordinator program prepares students to coordinate activities at the nursing unit desk. Health unit coordinators are sometimes referred to as HUC/monitor technicians, patient access technicians, patient assistance coordinators, administrative support partners, front desk receptionists, or scheduling coordinators.
