Develop your leadership skills and style in the unique environment of healthcare
At Griffith, we understand healthcare systems and services around the world are increasingly becoming more complex and changing in nature. The integration of health systems and their capacity to affect the quality of life for everyone means leaders and managers in these systems need the education, knowledge and research to support their contributions.
If you aspire to be an effective leader or manager in the health service industry, our postgraduate health services management degrees are for you. Learn to plan, direct, coordinate and supervise the delivery of health care, as you develop your administrative, technical, problem solving and human relations skills.

Preparing the next wave of effective healthcare managers
Our health services management programs will get you ready for health sector job opportunities in quality management, project management, change management, health informatics and risk management.
Develop the business skills to be effective in management roles in planning and coordinating healthcare services delivery, understanding the role of clinical services, managing information and resources. Acquire the confidence to apply cutting-edge theory to real industry challenges.
You'll be work-ready for healthcare settings such as primary and community care, private and public hospitals, and prepared for opportunities to work in policy development or health service planning.
All our health services management degrees are offered either full time or part time, on-campus or online. They're all taught at our South Bank campus in Brisbane, scheduled in the evening to accommodate your working hours. Or if you prefer an online study option, you'll be supported with advanced technology that provides access to multiple modalities.

You'll be given the opportunity to integrate your learning with hands-on practical experience through our industry placement program. You'll benefit from the opportunity to expand your resume, meet key industry networks and learn about future opportunities within the health sector.
The Master of Health Services Management is fully accredited by the Australasian College of Health Service Management.
Griffith Health Services Management Graduate
For Danish graduate Louise Hojsager her year at Griffith University brought some welcome and warm relief from the pains and strains of the global financial downturn and the Scandinavian climate. She also returned to Europe with her public health qualifications enhanced by a Master of Health Services Management from Griffith University. 'I had started to think about possible jobs after graduating but the global financial crisis made it pretty difficult to get a job,' Louise said. 'I did not want to do what everyone else did and go to Australia but my boyfriend convinced me that I would love it. He was absolutely right.'
As the world's population grows, so do its healthcare systems
The importance and impact of interventions in public health means the sector requires professionally educated, experienced health services management people to take leading roles.
Managers, clinicians, governments and owners of health facilities need qualifications in health management. With constant expansion, diversification and specialisation, there are many avenues for management careers, and many general and specialist management roles for people at national and international levels.
Careers may be available for professionals interested in moving into the health services area, or for mid-career health professionals seeking advancement, broadening their expertise and/or moving into management.
