The Medical Reception Certificate is a HSA in-house recognition certificate program.  It recognises the achievements of students who wish to undertake and complete only the first 5 units of competency of the 10 week nationally recognised Certificate III in Business Administration (Medical)( BSB 31112 ) course.

Students through this shorter program will attain the knowledge and practical skills required to work in the fields of medical reception and medical administration and will learn about medical terminology, Australia’s Medicare system and the widely used PracSoft computer program. Students who successfully complete this shorter program are awarded HSA’s Medical Reception Certificate and also receive a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment listing the units of competency they have completed in partial completion of the Certificate III Business Administration (Medical) course. 

Students can also elect to remain enrolled in the longer course and undertake the remaining 5 weeks of study (8 additional units of competency) to successfully complete the Certificate III in Business Administration (Medical) qualification.
