Clinical Assistant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 February 2017
I start my day with setting up all of my rooms. Making sure all of my rooms are stalked and ready for clinic. I bring down the patients to the doctor, I also ask their information to ensure it is the correct person. I absolutely love my job and I love working this kind of environment.
Medical Secretary (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 May 2016
Manager/supervisor teaches me in everything in all the aspect that I need to learn same with the other employees.. Enhance my telephone ethics.. Learned a lot on the flow of a clinic/hospital environment.. Hardest part of the job as a medical secretary is when the chart of the patient is missing.. the most enjoyable part is that i am learning everyday.
Medical Secretary working both front and back office for numerous departments. Typical day would consist of checking patients in/out, booking appointments, reminder calls, preparing charts, pulling charts, processing referrals, copying charts, loose paper filing etc. Way to much gossip amongst staff (flow coordinators, secretaries, volunteers and doctors etc). Made for a very uncomfortable work environment for one that's main focus is PATIENTS. Mangement is horrible and can easily manipulate and reverse situations to make employees feel at fault.
Hospital Operator (Former Employee) – Locating – 22 July 2015
I really liked this place overall. My only problem was that management was always being shuffled around and so there were times when I had no idea who to report to. Other than that, my department was a family and I truly do miss working there.

Client Service Representative (Current Employee) – Toronto – 15 March 2014
a typical day at work would be checking messages from patients who are calling to book/confirm mammogram appointments. I have learned everyday to be a patient person because some of those patients are very anxious about getting their exams done. Management is easy to work with. Management let me know when I'm doing a good job. The only draw back is that there is little room to grow into a different department. Right now we are in Phase I of the new hospital. Hopefully when Phase II and III is finished in 2015 things will be different. My co-workers are ok in some instances but I try to get along with everyone I work with. The hardest part of my job sometimes is to deal with a co-worker who think that patients are not important and she is just at work for the money. The most enjoyable part of my job is when I help patients either on the phone or when they come in the hospital for their appointments. The usually ask for my name.
Slow pace work environment with minimal room to grow
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 December 2013
Great people to work with but night shift work with no room to grow in the company. Very slow work pace, not much action due to construction of a new hospital and possible budget cuts and loss of work.
Registered Nurse in PACU (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 October 2013
Women's college gave me many options to grow as a nurse through educational opportunities and various role opportunities. I have grown alot from my experience at Women's College Hospital and what they stand for. They provide excellent client and family care.
HEALTH RECORDS CLERK (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 5 March 2013
A typical day at work for me scanning and posting documents to patient's medical chart. Working at the hospital I have learned the importance of maintaing accurate information and the care of personal information. I can say I have some outstanding co-workers for the most part, we all come from differents walks of life so we must learn to adapt in every situation. I wouldn't say there is a hard part to my job it's pretty basic and enjoyable and I'm always looking for another challenge. Interacting with my co-workers and patient's is the best part of my job I would say.
free lunch, wonderful co-workers, wonderful patients, nice working enviroment
not enough hours, management skills could be improved
Volunteer, Dermatology Dept (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 February 2013
Every wednesday I'm in the hospital and most of the time I do the phone calls for the patients sometime I do filling. My supervisor she is nice. My co-workers they are so nice to me, sometime they help to find the files or what to do for the day. The hardest part in my volunteering is if the patient ask me a question and I cannot answer right away because I'm just a volunteer but, I always try my best to help them if they needed.
MEDICAL ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 6 December 2012
