Registrars process records in various settings such as medical clinics and schools. Their duties include appointment scheduling, registration, data entry and billing. In high school and college settings, registrars assist students in making changes to their schedules or they prepare and provide records and transcripts upon request. In medical and healthcare settings, registrars keep track of important patient data, bill patients and provide medical records and reports. If you already work in a school setting, hospital setting or have secretarial experience, you might consider becoming a registrar. You could also eventually move up the ladder in an organization's administration after gaining experience as a registrar.
At minimum, you should hold a high school diploma or GED to become a registrar. Further education in bookkeeping and scheduling is helpful, but a keen eye for detail and preference for organization are essential characteristics of registrars. You must also have excellent customer service and communication skills to succeed in this role. Computer and database knowledge are further important skills for registrars.
