Career options

Health service managers operate in literally hundreds of different management roles. From community health centres to large private and public hospitals, from aged care facilities to specialist medical services, policy roles within government to major infrastructure projects, and from indigenous health care to the military, healthcare managers are responsible for delivering healthcare in every part of society.

To understand where you should start depends on your area of technical expertise and in what part of society you want to make a difference. Being able to get good advice via access to professional resources such as a mentor, accessing jobs boards and employment notices, and having the opportunity to meet and listen to other healthcare managers will also greatly assist you in making a successful transition to your career as a healthcare leader.
