The Master of Health Service Management is an advanced course of study designed to provide management professionals from both the public and private health sectors with training focussed on issues of contemporary professional management practice. Some of Australia's leading senior health service executives teach into the units. Students are therefore exposed to a level of unparalleled experience and real-world case-studies. 

The MHSM is offered only on a part-time basis (12 units over 2 to 3 years). The course is full fee-paying, which means that you will be charged at the full fee-paying rate listed for each unit.  

All units are delivered primarily off campus (by distance), with non-mandatory, supporting intensive seminars in Sydney (approximately 6-10 days of intensives per year).

The Master of Health Service Management Degree  aims to provide graduates with systematic and critical understanding of contemporary health service management and some specialised research skills for the advancement of professional practice.

Career outcomes

The MHSM is designed for those interested in pursuing a significant management or administrative role in the private or public health sectors. Successful completion of the MHSM provides graduates with a substantial background in relevant health service management theory, research and practice that should enhance their ability to plan and manage successfully in an increasingly complex national and international sector, and within the framework of societal values.
