About the SESLHD Health Management Graduate Program

The SESLHD Health Management Graduate Program is designed to develop skilled and capable health leaders and managers for the future. Participants in the program are known as Management Trainees.

The SESLHD Health Management Graduate Program is a broad and comprehensive two-year program with two main components: 

  1. Workplace Component
    Participants in the SESLHD Health Management Graduate Program work full-time for SESLHD, undertaking placements of 3-6 months duration through such areas as Hospital Management, Human Resources, Finance and the Executive Unit.

    Throughout the program, SESLHD provides participants with a range of professional development opportunities, including training, attendance at conferences and events, and mentoring, designed to support and develop participants and prepare them for a successful career. 
     

  2. Academic Component
    To complement the workplace learning and accelerate their knowledge, Management Trainees undertake a funded Master of Health Management on a part-time basis and in online mode. SESLHD is proud to partner with the University of New South Wales (UNSW) for the delivery of the academic component of the program.

Throughout the program, the progress of Management Trainees is assessed against the NSW Public Sector Capability Framework.
