The new Health Leadership and Management* endorsement offers you the opportunity to extend your experience into strategic and operational roles where you can develop innovative business solutions for better health outcomes.

Health organisations face daily challenges ranging from staffing and workload, to complicated processes and information systems, funding and and policy limitations. In these disruptive environments, effective leaders perform vital roles, using multiple skills such as strategic planning, budgeting, monitoring, evaluation, communication, negotiation, recruitment and managing risk.

The Health Leadership and Management* endorsement of the Postgraduate Diploma of Health Sciences, the Master of Health Sciences, and the Master of Health Sciences Professional Practice will help you develop your capability and interpersonal skills to shape and develop teams with high engagement, collaboration, resilience and innovation.
