  • Looking for advice.
    I would like to join AMSPAR.
    I am a qualified Medical Secretary (gained diploma from Anniesland College, Glasgow – 1985-1987).
    I work in the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.

    Many thanks, Carolyn.

  • Hi,
    I am currently working in an administration roll in the NHS and would like to progress and obtain an AMSPAR qualification. I currently hold a BSc in Psychology with Combined. I’m not really sure where I need to start with AMSPAR, Do I need to do level 2, then 3 then 5 or can I do 3 then 5?
