The Bachelor of Health Services Management presents a selection of units across health, business and information technology to enable you to work within, and make a positive contribution to, the health service management industry. When you graduate from this course you will understand business management combined with knowledge of the diversity of health clients, the importance of cultural safety, health promotion and local and global health issues influencing the health care system.
This course has an emphasis on understanding the challenges of working in diverse contexts of urban, rural, and remote communities and offers opportunities to access scholarships as well as study abroad with international study tours and student exchange programs available.
You'll study alongside students from business, nursing, midwifery, social work, and other allied health areas developing an understanding of multidisciplinary professions across the health industry. You'll gain knowledge of health beyond illness and disease prevention and learn how to manage, coordinate and administer health infrastructure and resources.
