There is flexibility in the program for you to choose study in areas of your own interest by self-directed learning under the guidance of a supervisor. You have the choice to undertake either a research project or a work-based project.
You may find yourself implementing workplace improvements, pursuing a research path, transitioning into other health science areas or employment in advanced, leadership or management roles in government, academia, hospitals, mental health and public health units, health care foundations, or aged and disability care services.
