Course Description

The Master of Health Administration, Policy and Leadership is an internationally focussed multidisciplinary program that is the only one of its kind in Australia. It aims to develop your skills and understanding of health policy, leadership, management, economics, law, epidemiology, informatics and communications for future health industry leaders. This course brings together our core expertise in research and teaching in health across the entire campus. This range of interdisciplinary skills and expertise will be complemented with opportunities to be taught by leading experts in the field, whilst connecting with health industry employers at the local, national and international level.

Students can choose to specialise in the areas of health administration and leadership, evaluation and policy, or health informatics and analytics, or to take a non-specialised route. Industry engagement is an important element, with some classes held in the new Fiona Stanley Hospital adjacent to campus.

Health is one of Australia’s largest industries, with over one million people employed nationally. It is also Western Australia’s largest single employment sector, where it is predicted to double in size over the next five years. International trends suggest that the increasing demand for executives, managers, professionals, administrators and analysts working in the healthcare industry will require specialised multidisciplinary skills and qualifications in health policy, management, economics, law, epidemiology, informatics and communications. Individuals already in the workforce will increasingly need to develop these skills to progress in their career.

Employment prospects for this course include the local, national and international health industry, including pharmaceutical and medical devices firms, non-government organisations, health insurers, regulatory agencies, hospitals and integrated care organisations, health ministries, departments, and other governmental agencies, as well as universities and commercial research bodies.

This course is provided by the Sir Walter Murdoch School of Public Policy & International Affairs.
