Provide leadership to health services navigating periods of disruptive change

The Australian healthcare industry spans a multitude of organisations and overlapping services that cut across public and private sectors. As one of Australia’s largest industries, there is a need for skilled managers who thrive in their work and are passionate about the delivery of high-quality healthcare services.

A fundamental responsibility of health service managers is to ensure healthcare services are well-managed and accessible to local communities, particularly for those who need it most.

Many health services are currently undergoing considerable change and technological innovation. By studying a Graduate Certificate in Health Services Management with QUT Online, you will develop skills specifically geared towards working within a range of health service contexts, in direct contact with local communities.
