What does a Clinic Manager do?
Clinic Managers are responsible for overseeing the daily operations of outpatient or medical facilities. They provide administrative support and oversee the hiring and training of staff members, liaise with patients and healthcare professionals and coordinate patient care plans. There are many different routes one may take to become a Clinic Manager, but working in a healthcare or clinical setting is the most common way. Many Clinic Managers begin their careers as Medical Office Assistants or even Registered Nurses.
Most Clinic Manager positions require a bachelor's degree, ideally in healthcare administration or a similar field. A master's degree in public health or health administration is a strong asset. Because this role features many administrative responsibilities, Clinic Managers must have excellent organizational and communication skills in order to ensure the clinic runs smoothly.
