Jessica is a 2nd Year Management Intern who
commenced the Program in 2015. Her current placement is within the
change management team at Health Infrastructure. This has been a great
transition from her first year within the NSW Health Pillar, The Agency
for Clinical Innovation (ACI).
Jessica completed her Bachelor in Occupational Therapy, and her
Masters in Physiotherapy and Health Policy, previously working as a
physiotherapist at the Children’s Hospital Westmead.
Initially applying to the HMIP to increase her understanding of the
processes and systems driving the health care system, she saw it as a
challenging opportunity to transition from clinician to health manager.
The program has, thus far, enabled her to develop a broader set of
skills and capabilities as a manager and has provided various
opportunities to be exposed to current leaders in the system.
Jessica, whilst uncertain of exactly where she sees herself within
management, has developed a keen interest in innovation and change
management and would like to be involved in the ongoing change of health
care systems and their delivery to achieve better patient outcomes.
