Prepare for the future of healthcare Healthcare is Australia’s largest industry. It’s growing and it’s also changing. Dr Louise Horstmanshof, Course Coordinator for the Master of Healthcare Leadership, says “we’re preparing in many ways for an unknown future”. We’re living longer but we also want to live better. The challenge for the health industry is in planning for, responding to and effectively managing change in a complex and busy environment. “We’re going to have to be more innovative, more flexible … and we need leadership … people who are open to opportunity, people who can look at data, look at systems, be critical about them, make decisions about them and lead others”, says Dr Horstmanshof. Rather than focusing on any one health discipline, the Master of Healthcare Leadership is designed to give you a broad, inter-disciplinary perspective on the changing face of healthcare. You might be a nurse with a diploma and many years of experience wanting to move out of direct care. You might be from an allied health background (like physiotherapy, osteopathy, counselling, optometry or even veterinary medicine) wanting to start your own practice. Or, you may be from a non-health background (perhaps you’ve worked in management and leadership in business or industry) and want to lead change and innovation in a healthcare setting. Whatever your background, a Master of Healthcare Leadership is designed to give you more flexibility, more opportunities and more transferable skills. Career opportunities Where will a Master of Healthcare Leadership take you? Where do you want to go? You’ll graduate with the skills to move into leadership and management roles in primary health care, community outreach, area health services, private practice, professional associations, hospitals, and local, state and federal policymaking agencies.
