For the past 12-years, Medical Administration Training (MAT) have been industry leaders in providing health industry courses like the Medical Receptionist Course in Adelaide, and other locations across Australia. And the Medical Receptionist Course is, without a doubt, one of the best ways to get started with a career in health administration.

But if you’re the type of student or employee always looking for ways to grow and develop your personal knowledge and career prospects, MAT has several courses that complement the Medical Receptionist Course. Many of these are standalone courses that expand on what you would have already learned through the Medical Receptionist Course, or help prepare you to return to the health administration sector after a long break. And like the Medical Receptionist Course, all the courses are designed for self-paced distance learning, making them suitable for students in Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, or any other Australian city or town. All you need is a fast internet connection (hard copies of the study material are available for those without a reliable internet connection), and the ability to manage your time to study independently.

As with the Medical Receptionist Course, all of these courses are recognised across Australia, and successful students all receive a Certificate or Statement of Attainment. MATs other health administration courses include:

  • HLTINF001 Comply with infection prevention and control policies and procedures – This is a nationally recognised unit of study addressing the industry requirements relating to infection control, including identifying infection hazards, and managing the risks associated with them.
  • HLT37315 Certificate III Health Administration – This nationally recognised course consists of 13 units of competency (five core and eight elective units), with students given up to 24-months to complete the course, though it can be completed in less time too.
  • HLT47315 Certificate IV Health Administration – Nationally recognised course that consists of 14 units of competency (six core and eight elective units). The elective units are split into two options, one for students new to the industry, and one for those with medical industry experience. Students have up to 24-months to complete the course, though it can be completed in less time too.
  • HLT57715 Diploma of Practice Management – This nationally recognised course consists of 15 units of competency (10 Core and 5 Elective units), and students have up to 24-months to complete, though it is possible to complete in less time.
  • BSBMED301 Interpret and apply medical terminology appropriately – this is included in the Medical Receptionist Course, but is available separately for anyone interested, or needing this as part of their application for recognition of prior learning (RPL).
  • BSB31115 Certificate III Business Administration (Medical) – A nationally recognised course consisting of 13 units of competency (two core and eleven elective units). Students have up to 24-months to complete the course, though it can be completed in less time too.
  • CHCCCS020 Respond effectively to behaviours of concern – Completing this unit will give you the skills to identify and manage challenging and unacceptable behaviour in the workplace.
  • Developing Keyboard Speed & Accuracy – a great short course for anyone wanting to improve their typing skills, especially if you’ve never had any formal typing training before.

All of these course perfectly complement the Medical Receptionist course, selectively improving your core skills, while adding new skills that will benefit you, patients, and healthcare providers. Some are specifically linked to working within a medical practice, while others can be applied to health administration within any setting.
