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.
