How to become a Patient Coordinator

If a facility does not require a registered nurse, you can pursue a two-year associate degree or bachelor's degree in medical or healthcare management. Degrees focus on both medical and business management and combine business-related courses with courses in medical terminology. Depending on specific function and job description, some facilities will require prior experience in accounting and budgeting with a working knowledge of law and ethics, as well.
