Master of Advanced Healthcare Practice

Indepth knowledge and skills to advance your career

The Master of Advanced Health Care Practice develops the in-depth knowledge and skills you need to work effectively in your specialist discipline and advance your career goals. While a successful career in health care rests on specialist clinical skills, many experienced health care practitioners develop an interest in research but find they lack the academic background required to pursue that interest. This master’s program also offers a research stream that provides a pathway into a doctoral program.

The Master of Advanced Health Care Practice builds competence in research-informed skills and decision making in a range of specialisations. Interprofessional in nature, this program is designed to give general practitioners, nurses, midwives, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, radiation therapists, radiographers and practitioners working in primary health care the opportunity to gain a master's qualification to enhance their practice and their career options.

The six specialisations are:

  • clinical midwifery
  • medical imaging
  • occupational therapy
  • paediatric physiotherapy
  • primary health care
  • radiation therapy
