UTS is well known for its expertise in Health Services Management. Through postgraduate coursework and research, we aim to:
- Develop and sustain a research culture within health services management
- Improve health outcomes and lower costs
- Identify, explore, demonstrate and evaluate key strategic health care issues
- Link health services research with policy and practice.
Study areas and research focus areas have been chosen to equip students with skills to respond to the evolving needs of healthcare systems.
Courses are developed in consultation with senior staff in the areas of Health Management, clinical governance and health informatics to ensure course material reflects areas of industry demand. In addition, guest lecturers from the industry enrich the learning experience with specialist knowledge from their field of expertise.
Our courses suit people seeking a career in Health Services and Healthcare Management and also suit those who want to deepen their existing level of knowledge and experience.
Developed with the NSW and QLD Ministries of Health, the courses go beyond generic management skills to include clinical components and a specialised health focus that makes graduates particularly valuable to employers.

Master of Health Services Management (C04140v9)
“Studying in the area of health services management is so rewarding as it challenges students to look at health services in different ways and also to question why current practices occur and how do they relate to the health outcomes of patients and the community.”
