The objective is to teach courses that deal with A to Z in healthcare services. 


As part of the SN Academy, Certificates and fellowships programmes of various durations would be awarded at the end of successful completion of different courses. Importance to practical training would be of utmost importance definitely necessitating smaller number of students per class and longer duration of courses. Both Distance education programme and residential form of education would be imparted.


In order to train medical secretaries in performing highly specialized secretarial duties, the Sankara Nethralaya Academy offers a ‘Short Term Course in Medical Secretary.’ The course will train medical secretaries to schedule appointments, file bills for patients, compile medical charts and reports and handle correspondence. The course will enable secretaries to understand the nuances of writing reports, articles, billing, insurance and order supplies.



By the end of the course, a medical secretary will possess a cornucopia of skills and be a good communicator. A secretarial position within the medical profession is the best of both worlds for some - a responsible office job plus the satisfaction of being involved with people’s health and possibly even contact with patients. That’s why specialist Medical Secretarial jobs are very well regarded.
