Hi, I am applying for a job for medical receptionist in Brisbane. There are a few things i am unsure about under Essential selection criteria. Can someone please let me know what "completion of an Associate Diploma with relevant work experience in General Practice" means? experience in General Practice - as in GP Doctors ? I have worked as a Dentist Receptionist which although in the health field is not a GP. Also Associate Diploma what does this mean?? I did my schooling in New Zealand and have not come across this title before.

Thanks

@Zunked,
Perhaps in Queensland there is some sort of qualification at Assoc. Diploma level for medical receptionists. I'm not aware of it - but then...I don't live in Queensland.

They are also asking for relevant work experience in general practice - and yes - that does mean in a doctor's surgery.

I would suggest you contact the practice and ask them about the qualification required. If they're making it an "essential criteria" then this may not be the job for you.

@Zunked,
My opinion comes from the US. A requirement for an associate degree is probably a firm requirement, though I notice they didn't specify any particular field. As for the relevant work experience, I wouldn't let that stop me from applying. Around here, they get carried away with job requirements, and often take the best they can get, regardless.

@roger,
Ok thanks Smile I am about to apply, its then up to them whether i fit the criteria - i can imagine for some roles it must be near impossible to find the perfect candidate with every box ticked.
