Applications are now open for postgraduate study in 2020.

Postgraduate studies in Health Policy, taught in collaboration with the Menzies Centre for Health Policy, are accelerate post-graduate awards designed to increase capacity and value of anyone working – or planning to work – in health services, policy-making, leadership or health policy research.

Graduates gain a comprehensive and practical understanding of health systems and policymaking, including policy analysis; health economics; health financing and budgets; power, politics and agenda setting; and the critical use of evidence.

Our courses, are taught online or in full day intensives, making it ideal for people who are working or those who live outside the Sydney metropolitan area.

Our students work closely with leaders in the public, private and non-government sectors to gain an understanding of roles in the health system, and build national and international professional networks. The program is offered at four award levels – master’s degree, graduate diploma, graduate certificate and professional certificate.
