The 10720NAT Diploma of Health Administration is a nationally recognised VET accredited course exclusively offered by the Australian Medical Association (WA), who developed it with extensive input from healthcare stakeholders.
The Diploma is a 16-unit qualification that addresses the needs of managers in a healthcare setting. Whilst many of the demands on managers are universal, the industry and context in which managerial expertise is required can be quite different across various industries.
The healthcare industry is one of the major global employers of staff, and continues to experience significant growth. Doctors, nurses, allied health workers and carers are all an integral part of the healthcare sector, but so are professional health leaders. All of these topics will be learnt in a modern and executive-style campus, by highly qualified lecturers and in a supported environment.
