Over ten years, AusHSI has developed and delivered:

  • The Graduate Certificate in Health Science (Health Services Innovation), Australia’s first post graduate university qualification to combine health economics and implementation science aimed at enabling senior clinicians and health service administrators to develop, assess and implement innovations within the healthcare setting.
  • The Graduate Certificate in Digital Health Leadership and Management (launched this year) responds to the current and anticipated demand for a skilled and professional workforce to provide leadership in the implementation, adoption and meaningful use of digital health systems.
  • Numerous short courses, providing significant skills training in implementation science, cost-effectiveness, statistics and Value-based healthcare and economics for leadership.
  • Support for Higher Degree by Research students developing existing skills and future careers in the field of health services research.

Jane Partridge, Director, Health Purchasing and Performance Division, Queensland Health comments: “The practical skills that AusHSI are embedding in our leaders around health economics and clinical effectiveness, around implementation science really help to build our capability right from the grassroots up, to be able to tackle these challenges in practical ways.”
