About our courses
Health Management involves management disciplines of human resources, financial management and information management etc. applied to the context of health services as well as specific health disciplines, for example, health policy, health promotion, epidemiology, community analysis, and public health. This transdisciplinary approach equips modern health services managers with knowledge and skills to competently lead health services in these dynamic times.
UNE is fortunate to have a staff at the School of Health with a variety of experiences of value to health managers and this staff injects their enthusiasm into this special area of health services. The staff not only teach health management, but also, research health services both locally and internationally, for example, roles of health mangers, quality management, evaluation of primary health care, policy analysis etc. Recent graduates occupy key positions in public and private health facilities in Australia and overseas.
