Job Description for Ophthalmic Surgery Coordinator

Ophthalmic surgery coordinators are responsible for establishing and coordinating schedules and other activities within a clinic, as well as coordinating between the clinic, surgeon, and surgery center to inform each of changes and requirements as they occur. These coordinators implement programs such as AdvancedMD or EyeDoc Software to keep accurate records and schedules, so intermediate computer skills are often required for this position. In addition to creating surgery schedules, ophthalmic surgery coordinators are also required to change and optimize schedules based on staff requests or requirements, which requires strong verbal and written communication skills. They may also be required to scan and categorize patients' history and medical paperwork, as well as any paperwork created for surgery.
