About this course

The course is offered on a part-time (commencing in either semester) or full-time basis (commencing second semester only). Our teaching staff have clinical qualifications in areas such as medicine, physiotherapy and nursing, and in health administration research. They've worked in senior healthcare management roles in Australia and overseas, with organisations such as the Toronto Hospital (Canada), Inner and Eastern Healthcare Network (Melbourne) and PwC. In your first year you'll get an introduction to the Australian health system's key structural components, their interrelationships and relevant policy issues. You'll learn about financial management in health services, in particular, systems of finance and budgeting, and people management including industrial relationships and organisational leadership. In second year, you'll conduct a hands-on research project designed to deepen and integrate your skills and knowledge in public health, health promotion or health management. You'll gain practical experience, applying analytical and problem-solving strategies to real healthcare and public health problems.
