If you are a health practitioner, engineer, computing professional or scientist, this unique program will equip you with the skills to deliver improved outcomes for patients through the innovative use of health technologies.
Healthcare solutions are increasingly dependent on the innovative use of modern technologies to improve patients’ health outcomes. A smart watch to help people with sleep apnoea detect and improve their sleeping patterns, a wearable device to track heart and respiratory rates, smart glasses for the vision-impaired, and a fitness tracking ring – these are all examples of health technology innovations.
A postgraduate degree in health technology innovation is an ideal professional qualification for those already in the medical or related industries who wish to expand their career options and take advantage of exciting opportunities in this emerging and exciting field.
Graduates can become technology specialists within the health and medical fields, using their detailed knowledge and practical hands-on expertise to manage health technology infrastructure.
After your degree, you could be responsible for selecting and deploying software products and help to create and manage business applications, websites and systems within health-related organisations.
At the master’s level, this degree will take two years full time to complete (96 credit points). The program can also be taken at the level of Graduate Diploma in Health Technology Innovation (1.5 years and 60 credit points).
Your prior qualifications or in some cases, work experience, may enable you to reduce the number of credit points required to complete your degree. See how it works.
