Get a qualification to meet the challenges of health sector managment

Wednesday, May 24, 2017   Posted in: Training By: Administrator With tags: Training, Courses, qualification, management

University of Otago - Te Whare Wānanga o OtāgoApplications for the Postgraduate Diploma in Health Management and Master of Health Sciences endorsed in Health Management are now open for study starting in July 2017!

The Postgraduate Diploma in Health Management and the Master of Health Sciences (Health Management) are qualifications from the University of Otago, available in Christchurch.

These qualifications are designed to facilitate the acquisition of skills in business management for health professionals who are or wish to become involved in the strategic direction and general management of health-related organisations. They provide managers from other sectors, who may have good business skills but limited experience in the health sector, the opportunity to gain greater knowledge and understanding of the specific issues and challenges in the health system.

The Postgraduate Diploma in Health Management (PGDipHealMgt) is a programme of study that draws equally on public health and business administration. Participants study health systems, policy and health economics in the public health programme and a suite of recommended papers in business.

The Master of Health Sciences endorsed in Health Management (MHealSc) offers an advanced qualification in management, which includes a research component of either a supervised thesis or dissertation. It is suitable for students who wish to pursue a higher-level career in health management, and will provide evidence of in-depth, independent investigation into topics selected by students.

Visit the University of Otago website for more information on their health management programmes. You can also contact Katrina Hogg (03 364 3602 or katrina.hogg[at]
