Take your career in health economics, management and policy to the next level.
Healthcare systems worldwide have been facing increasing challenges such as the COVID-19 pandemic, the ageing population and increasing costs and opportunities deriving from rapid technological advances. The University of Newcastle’s suite of health economics management and policy programs prepares motivated, capable, multi-skilled graduates ready to respond to, and face, the unprecedented changes this dynamic and complex sector is and will be experiencing.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a worldwide scrutiny and review of healthcare systems and health policy at an international, national and local government level. As we have seen from this pandemic, a health crisis induces a systemic crisis of society as a whole with pressures on the economy, international relations, the social system and communities.
In response to the challenging and ever-changing healthcare landscape, the University of Newcastle has introduced a suite of postgraduate programs which look at health from the lenses of business and applied social sciences, in particular economics, data analytics, leadership and management and policy and evaluation.
Targeted towards undergraduates from any bachelor multidisciplinary program and professionals with healthcare experience or experience from other sectors, these programs are for those looking to acquire in-depth managerial and leadership skills to progress in their career or for those ready for a new career path.
As the CEO of Hunter New England Health, I welcome and applaud this initiative which contributes greatly to our collaborative efforts to strengthen our capabilities and strive towards making our healthcare system even more efficient and equitable for the health improvement of our community.”
- Michael DiRienzo, Chief Executive, Hunter New England Local Health District
