The Master of Health Administration will help you develop the skills and experience you need to lead and manage projects, health agencies, services and programs. La Trobe will prepare students to advance into leadership and management in the public and private sectors in general management and in specialist roles in areas such as project management, quality management and the management of particular health professions.
The teaching staff have clinical qualifications in areas such as medicine, physiotherapy, nursing, organisational psychology and statistics, and in health administration research. They’ve worked in senior healthcare management roles in Australia and overseas, with organisations such as the Toronto Hospital (Canada), Inner and Eastern Healthcare Network (Melbourne) and various consulting firms, as well as having extensive governance experience.
The range of electives allows students to further explore health economics and finance, health law and ethics, and process redesign. The subject timetable is designed to give students the flexibility they need to successfully balance study with your other commitments: the combination of evening, block and online study modes means that you can choose when and how you study.
