What is a Unit Clerk?

Unit Clerks are often the first point of contact for patients entering a medical facility, managing the flow of information from patients to medical staff and vice versa.
As a Unit Clerk your responsibilities can include:
  • Unit clerks in particular play a vital role in hospitals by assisting physicians and nurses in their unit
  • Answering phones, booking appointments and responding to general inquiries
  • Processing orders for medication prescriptions and diagnostic exams, schedule patient treatments, manage and maintain records and assist with intake and discharge from the unit or clinic
  • Various administrative duties, including health care billing, updating room lists and keeping office and patient care supplies stocked
Becoming a Unit Clerk is a fantastic way to develop a successful, stable career while making the world a better place for people in your community.

What Our Students Have to Say

Trust the Process

Studying at ABES College has been one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. The instructors and staff are a top-rate as they want their students to do well and they are very supportive in every step of the way. I am very thankful for all the staff of ABES College as they have been a part of my successful journey and I wouldn't achieve what I have achieved without the caring environment. One piece of advice I would like to give to future students is "just trust the process!"

They will give you everything you need to start in health care down to scrubs to wear. I would recommend anyone to take a program here. The staff and teachers really care about students. They will help you reach your goals.

The ABES College Difference

What Makes ABES Different from Other Schools?

We stand out from other schools for 3 big reasons:
  • As a small, privately owned school, ABES guarantees hands-on training for every student.
  •  Unlike other schools, all our programs offer practicum in the Calgary area—making it easier for you to stay local. (Many students get their first job offer while they’re still on practicum)
  • Finally, we stand out for our extensive connections in the medical community. Thanks to our relationships with local healthcare facilities, our graduates have an easy road to employment.
