Health administration courses

An essential arm of Australia‘s healthcare industry, health administration can lead to many fulfilling and diverse career paths from practice managers to receptionists to allied health assistants.

An industry outlook 

Australia‘s healthcare industry is the largest employing industry, with a projected 1.9 million employees by 2024. This is primarily due to Australia‘s ageing population causing higher demand for healthcare services. With this demand comes a rise in skilled administrators who can effectively organise, support and manage these medical services and practices. 

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, 4.1% of health service employees will work in healthcare reception, while another 7.2% will take on practice manager roles. The average salary of a medical administration worker sits at approximately $64,172, while a practice manager earns an average of $106,443.

According to JobOutlook, the majority of health administrators work full-time and are female. The age range of health administrators is broad, with the majority of workers currently sitting anywhere between 25 – 59 years old. 

Health admin job prospects

Completing a health administration course can lead to a range of “behind-the-scenes” career opportunities. For example, you can land yourself a new career as a:

  • Medical receptionist
  • Ward clerk
  • Admissions Clerk
  • Accounts or records clerk
  • Customer service representative

Health administration courses

Completing formal education before starting work in the health administration sector is highly recommended. You’ll develop essential knowledge and skills that will see you thrive in any role you choose to pursue. From accredited TAFE short courses through to diploma qualifications, training.com.au has it all.

Certificate III 

A certificate III in health administration is a year-long qualification that will help you develop a strong foundation of knowledge. You’ll learn basic medical terminology, how to manage patient records and essential communication methods and skills. This course has no formal education entry requirements and offers flexible payment options for tuition fees. Recognition of prior learning is also available.

Certificate IV

A more comprehensive, practical qualification within the Allied Health sector, a Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance, will teach you about the world of client care and therapeutic/health programs. This qualification has a compulsory work experience requirement and can be completed full-time or part-time

Diploma

A Diploma of practice management will ensure you develop the competency and knowledge to contribute to a practice’s strategic direction, work health status and ensure daily operations run smoothly. Most core units focus on people management and leadership to help prepare students for more senior management roles. Enrolment in a diploma-level qualification can also lead you to become a medical administration manager in a wide range of medical facilities. 

Most diploma qualifications are offered as online courses and offer recognition of prior learning for credit transfer.

 

An RTO provided health administration course is the best way to gain in-depth healthcare workplace information, skills and the confidence to embark on your new career journey. Most qualifications offer online learning options and supportive student services to ensure all students are able to complete their training while feeling supported.
