Course content

As our understanding of society’s complex and specialised healthcare needs increases, the more important effective, evidence-based management of health services becomes.

Our PhD in Healthcare Management will give you the opportunity to pursue your particular personal or professional interest in the leadership and improvement of health services, how they provide treatment for people with physical and mental illnesses, and how they can contribute to health improvement through targeted interventions.

Over the course of your studies, you will develop and enhance transferable skills such as problem solving, project management, and critical thinking that are valued in any professional setting.

Recent student research projects in Healthcare Management include research into patient and public involvement, data security in information systems, and improved methods for evaluating large capital expenditures in health care.
