It is not an exaggeration to state that a medical receptionist plays a vital role in the successful management of a healthcare practice. In many practices medical reception – or medical administration – is a multi-disciplinary position that calls for administrative skill, medical knowledge, and stellar customer service. The medical receptionist isn’t only expected to manage patients, patient records, and appointments, but also take care of billing, health insurance claims, and act as an intermediary between the doctor and other healthcare services.

It is a role that one can grow into through on-the-job training, but a professional medical receptionist course will provide the required skills and knowledge much faster. And with the best medical receptionist course Perth has to offer, you can expect Medical Administration Training (M.A.T) to give you access to those skills and knowledge, while providing an entryway to a world of opportunities.

A career in medical administration offers job security in one of the fastest growing industries in Australia, in a role that can’t easily be automated or outsourced. And as a medical receptionist you aren’t limited to only working in a private practice. Qualified medical receptionists are able to take on administrative roles in healthcare practices, clinics, and even hospitals.

Why should you choose M.A.Ts Medical Receptionist Course?

M.A.T is recognised in the healthcare industry for offering the finest and most comprehensive medical receptionist course in Perth. The M.A.T Medical Receptionist and Terminology course is recognised by the Australian Medical Receptionist Association (AMRA), and is nationally accredited. Like our past graduates and alumni, you too can look forward to starting a long-term career in medical administration after completing the course.

The M.A.T medical receptionist course is all-encompassing, but focused students should be able to complete it in eight weeks. Over a two month period you will work through four comprehensive units – and receive relevant computer software training – that will fully prepare you for your career in medical administration. And as noted earlier, with our Medical Receptionist and Terminology course you won’t be limited to working in private practices only. You’ll have access to careers in all healthcare facilities, including specialist clinics, or even working as a ward clerk.

We have been offering the medical receptionist course – and other healthcare courses – for more than 12-years, allowing us to perfect the course content to emphasise the essentials. And as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), you’re assured that your training from M.A.T will be of the highest possible standard.

What are your study options for the Medical Receptionist Course?

Flexible learning options are a priority for many, and M.A.T offers two study options for the Medical Receptionist Course that meet the needs of a busy modern society. Our two study options make the course accessible to any student, regardless of where in Australia they are based, and whether or not they are currently employed full-time.

Home Study

Our contemporary take on traditional distance learning is perfect for any student not able commit to class or venue based study. Students are able to study online at their own pace, and at times that suit them, using M.A.Ts e-learning virtual classroom. Alternatively, students can ask for the training materials to be shipped to them. The success of this form of study hinges on the student having the commitment and dedication to study independently. Support in the form of a virtual trainer is available for those who prefer a bit of guidance.

If you are unable to attend any of our venue based training, or need some flexibility in when and how you study, home study is the ideal way to approach a career in medical administration.

Blended Study

As the name suggests, blended study combines self-paced home study with venue based training. The modules relating to reception and admin are covered during venue based training, with PracSoft training and medical terminology modules happening online via the M.A.T e-learning virtual classroom. At this time our venue based training is not available in Perth, though training is available in our Brisbane and Melbourne venues on multiple dates throughout the year. Venue based training is always scheduled for Saturdays, making them less disruptive for anyone currently working full-time.

What modules are included in the Medical Receptionist Course?

M.A.Ts Medical Reception and Terminology course is made up of four modules, along with training on PracSoft, a software program that makes managing appointments, billing, reporting and Medicare claims easier for any medical receptionist. The modules include:

  • Interpret And Apply Medical Terminology Appropriately
  • Prepare And Process Medical Accounts
  • Applying The Principles Of Confidentiality, Privacy And Security Within A Medical Environment
  • Maintain Patient Records

Students who successfully complete the M.A.T Medical Receptionist Course will receive a Certificate or Statement of Attainment, along with free membership to the Australian Medical Receptionist Association (AMRA) for one year, and a career guide.

M.A.Ts Medical Receptionist Course is designed not only for those wishing to start a career in medical administration, but also those currently working in this field and wanting to advance further. As an RTO we fully support the recognition of prior learning (RPL), and you can speak to one of our qualified advisers to learn more.
