The Graduate Program in Health Policy offers a critical perspective on how our health care system operates. It emphasises the importance of power and value choices, focusing on the interaction of governments with the private and community sectors in shaping policy.
This unique program will extend the professional skills of students.
The master's program includes intensive training in policy analysis and critical appraisal techniques. These are applied to practical tasks of policy development and writing.
Classes are conducted in intensive mode, including weekend workshops and web-based learning.
By the end of the course students will understand the forces shaping the health policy environment, work with professional confidence across the health sector, and be familiar with the workings of high-level national and international health policy networks.
Students learn how to develop and implement health policy through the application of knowledge to health policy issues and analysis of current health policy trends.
