Lead the way! Healthcare systems across the world aim to deliver quality, safe and effective care to the population. However, many systems face challenges of limited resources, changing healthcare needs and rapidly advancing technology. Our postgraduate courses in health administration will develop the practical leadership and management skills needed to address challenging issues in these changing healthcare environments, and to manage relationships with other service providers, consumers and policymakers.
This course will equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to navigate the complexity of delivering and planning for services in a modern healthcare environment.
It is designed for clinicians, managers and administrators who want to deliver high quality, safe and effective healthcare.
It is possible to exit this course with a Graduate Certificate in Health Administration or a Graduate Diploma in Health Administration once you have completed certain units.
