The Master of Health Service Management is an advanced course of study designed to provide management professionals from both the public and private health sectors with training focussed on issues of contemporary professional management practice. Some of Australia's leading senior health service executives teach into the units. Students are therefore exposed to a level of unparalleled experience and real-world case-studies.
The MHSM is offered only on a part-time basis (12 units over 2 to 3 years). The course is full fee-paying, which means that you will be charged at the full fee-paying rate listed for each unit.
All units are delivered primarily off campus (by distance), with non-mandatory, supporting intensive seminars in Sydney (approximately 6-10 days of intensives per year).
For admission to this degree you need to have:
a) an Australian Bachelor degree or equivalent level standard in any other institution majoring in a management and/or health related discipline and employment within the health sector;
b) an Australian post-Bachelor degree (Honours, Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma, Master, or Doctorate) or equivalent level standard in any other institution in any discipline and employment in the health sector;
c) an Australian Bachelor degree or equivalent level standard in any other institution in an unrelated discipline and a minimum of two years relevant work experience in the health sector.
Successfully completed equivalent postgraduate units in other courses at the University of Tasmania or another approved tertiary institution may be credited towards the degree. Credit is also available for some qualifications attained through professional bodies such as Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Medical Administrators, where these have been assessed as equivalent to postgraduate study. Application for credit should be made at the time of application for admission.
