The Graduate Certificate in Health Management provides you with the essential knowledge, skills and attributes required for senior managerial roles in health service delivery. It aims to help promote current and future leaders who are skilled in strategic planning, quality and safety improvement and monitoring, and policy making in a wide variety of contexts. These include the hospital and community health care services, aged care services, ministries and departments of health, government and non-government and voluntary organisations, primary care and general practice, in both public and private sectors.
You will receive a strong grounding in the principles underpinning health systems and services – and be equipped to contribute knowledge and techniques with well-developed judgement for improving health service outcomes in specific and diverse health management contexts.
Please note: From 2021 this program will be called the Graduate Certificate in Health Leadership and Management.
