Students in the UTS Health Services Management program begin to build a portfolio of the capabilities required of a health services manager from day one studies. Our program is about working with the leaders of today and tomorrow to ensure they have the knowledge, skills and abilities to manage within the complex and rapidly changing fields of health, ageing and disability. Our students are guided through the latest management theories from critical and population health perspectives. They are exposed to industry experts who share both their knowledge and wisdom of the latest challenges and most effective methods for improving the quality and outcomes of care, whether that care is delivered in hospitals or in the community.
Our programs are highly interactive and based on adult learning principles. Our curriculum covers a wide range of essential management skills including: value and cost efficiency in healthcare, implementation science, design thinking, quality and safety improvement, leadership teamwork for change management, population and vulnerability perspectives in healthcare, communication and negotiation skills, and conflict management.
Through postgraduate coursework and research, we provide a solid understanding on how to improve health outcomes, lower costs, budget, and link health services research with populations, policy and practice. By engaging with organisations, our students work on real life, real time and real impact problems.
Studying in the area of Health Services Management is so rewarding. It challenges students to look at health services in different ways and to question why current practices occur, and how they relate to the health outcomes of patients and the community.
