Diploma of Practice Management

The Diploma of Practice Management is the quintessential qualification for practice managers, aspiring practice managers and GPs who manage the operation of small to medium size health practices.

The Diploma covers off on key managerial topics such as staff recruitment and induction, budgets, managing team effectiveness, ensuring quality customer service and harbouring a culture of continuous improvement. Key health-related subjects cover off on infection control, medical terminology and managing a health billing system.

The Diploma of Practice Management is AMA Training’s flagship qualification for medical practice owners and managers and is delivered via AMA Training’s unique Assisted Study Program.

The Assisted Study Program strikes a balance between equipping you with the skills you need to complete your studies and maintaining your work/life balance.


What our Students Have to Say About the Course:

“The guidance and support from the lectures makes it very enjoyable. I have already been able to action a few things at our practice.” – V. Yates

“The interactive live online lectures are awesome! The way the Diploma is delivered through online lectures and seminars throughout the term really reinforces what you’re learning.  As a busy working mother of 3 I love the fact that the lectures are recorded. Gives you that flexibility to juggle work, study and family life.” – Sarah R

AMA Training Services Assisted Study Program

The Assisted Study Program (ASP) ensures that you are given every opportunity to succeed and develop yourself as a manager. The ASP guides you through two units of competency per school term, supporting your studies with interactive live online lectures and occasional evening seminars / workshops from expert presenters.

This approach keeps your school holidays free from study requirements whilst ensuring there are other students and a dedicated trainer sharing your learning journey with you. For added flexibility, live online sessions will be recorded and made available for later viewing.

Four units are completed as self-paced study, meaning that you can commence your studies at any time without having to wait for the next ASP term to begin.
