They will develop management and leadership skills relevant to hospitals and primary care, health networks (including government and NGO's), integrated local area planning for health and wellbeing, and various human service agencies, such as aged care facilities and disability services. The course will provide students with opportunities to develop core competencies required for leadership and strategic planning, evidence-based decision making, health needs assessment and evaluation, program planning and monitoring, resource and project management, communication and negotiation.
