General Information

This course is designed for health professionals or graduates with health management experience who expect to move into senior and top management roles in a health system. The program is set primarily within the context of the public and national health services, but it is also relevant for managers of NGOs, and international organisations and of private hospitals. It is expected that students will be able to draw on their own knowledge of health management in class work and assignments, and applicants without any hospital experience will normally be expected to gain such experience before starting the program. The course aims to develop the ability to think analytically and to handle the management and development issues faced by hospital senior and mid- level managers. These include structure and organisation, planning and managing resources, reviewing and evaluating services and understanding the local / national and international context of a health system.

Admission Requirement
  1. Applicants must possess an appropriate Undergraduate University or College degree from a recognized institution
  2. Applicants who do not hold a university or college degree, will be considered for admissions if they have professional certification / diploma AND minimum three years full-time appropriate work experience
