AusHSI Graduate Certificate in Health Science (Health Services Innovation)

The Graduate Certificate in Health Science (Health Services Innovation) was the first post graduate health innovation qualification in Australia, aimed at enabling senior clinicians and health service administrators to develop, assess and implement innovations within the healthcare setting. The program was designed to build the capability of health service staff to implement innovative change, through enhanced capability in implementation science, health systems development and reform, and cost-effectiveness analysis.

Originally developed by the Australian Centre for Health Services Innovation (AusHSI) and QUT in partnership with Metro North Hospital and Health Service, this large-scale, formally accredited post-graduate program was offered exclusively within MNHHS for 5 years – QUT is not currently delivering the program.

We welcome approaches from health services who may be interested in delivering this program within their service, or developing a new, tailored education program.
