Medical and Clinical Administration Diploma overview

As the need for all kinds of health services and provisions increases, so too does the need for an effective medical office team. Front of house reception staff and practice managers provide crucial support to the smooth functioning of administrative support in a busy surgery or clinic.

More often than not, reception staff and practice managers are the first people to encounter sick or very ill patients. They are expected to deal empathetically with patients, dealing with requests in a timely manner and provide efficient admin and clerical support on a day to day basis.

These responsibilities and duties mean that clerical support staff within the medical profession must be trained and skilled to fulfil what can be heavy demands, and on a daily basis.

This is the reason why medical and clinical admin courses are popular.

The objectives of the diploma are for students to;

  • Develop a broad understanding of the principles of medical administration and reception duties
  • Learn techniques and adhere to principles of good practice
  • To develop an in-depth, specialist knowledge of medical legislation
  • Learn necessary terminology
  • Prepare for The Association of Medical Secretaries, Practice Managers, Administrators and Receptionists (AMSPAR) qualifications
  • Gain a valuable and recognised certificate on Medical and Clinical Administration from a leading UK awarding body, ABC Awards

Medical and clinical admin courses distance learning packages include support from expert tutors, often with many years of experience in the field. These courses are important for dealing with all aspects of working in this demanding role from reception skills to hygiene and patient confidentiality.

What can I do after completing medical and clinical admin courses?

Students who successfully complete this paper-based course will find that there are opportunities that become available to them both in their current work setting and in new career avenues opening up.

Many students go on to complete other courses with NCC Home Learning too. For those with responsibilities for leading a team of medical admin staff, team leading courses can be useful, as can a broad-based business administration qualification.
