Principles of Personal Injury Scheme Design - PDM1138

Monash School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine (SPHPM) and the Personal Injury Education Foundation (PIEF) have partnered to create a unique offering that leads into a postgraduate pathway for people working in the workers’ compensation and motor accident compensation industries in Australia, New Zealand and globally. This pathway will provide scheme participants with the opportunity to enrich and enhance the depth of personal injury management knowledge and skills.

In this nine-week course you will gain an understanding of the policy rationale and parameters governing personal injury scheme design. The centrepiece of this course is the three-day “Residential intensive” teaching period. After five weeks of online-based learning, you will have an unmatched opportunity to foster new professional networks with students, course presenters and other insurance industry experts in an environment that fosters critical thought and robust discussion. You’ll have an opportunity to present your teams’ solution to a scheme design challenge to a panel of industry experts.

Who Should Attend

This course would be ideal for anyone interested in learning more about designing schemes that support personal injury and disability management scheme design across Australia, New Zealand and beyond, with a view to improving their ability to operate in and influence the success of compensation scheme design.
