Entry level Medical Records

I recently completed Health Data Analyst I from Wharton Junior County college. I am looking for entry level positions in the Health Care field. However I am having difficulty getting jobs because everyone is asking for Health Care experience.

Any advice/suggestions as to what I should do? Any places where I can volunteer or work as Temp to gain Medical Records experience?

Hi Manisha,

Health Data Analyst is a good field but most positions in data analyst are required expeiences . However, you can gain medical records or electronic medical records (EMR ) experiences by applying entry level in many healthcare settings ( doctor offices, or hopsital ). There are lots of entry level positions in this field (like medical records coordinator, electronic health record specialist ) but there is no volunteer position for medical records.
Hope this helps!
Thank you comment icon Thank you, Binh for the advice. Manisha

Hello Manisha,
I would definitely suggest looking into volunteer options as you mentioned as well as entry level medical records positions within a hospital or a doctors office. It can be difficult to have the experience that is being sought out for these kinds of positions but not impossible to do. Best of luck.

Hi Manisha,

I would recommend checking with local medical offices, both through large healthcare systems and smaller private practices. Don't limit yourself to traditional medicine, experience at a dental office, optometrist, physical therapist, etc. would give you medical experience that could help you transition towards a medical records position.
