Tell me more about what a medical unit clerk does!

Medical unit clerks are often the first person a patient or client might see when they access a healthcare setting. These health service professionals are responsible for greeting patients in a warm and respectful way, and ensuring patients are prepared for their consultation with the physician or other health care provider. Behind the scenes, the medical unit clerk will assist to ensure clinical spaces are ready for the patient, preparing the smooth and efficient operation of clinics and medical office settings by monitoring supply levels and setting up for clinical procedures.
