Management for Health Professionals

Online Course | $120

Good performance as a clinician often leads to management opportunities. 

If you are excelling in your current role, it's likely that you will be provided with the opportunity to take on more management tasks. While this provides a great opportunity to advance in your career, it may also highlight a skills gap in management functions such as managing resources, rostering, budgeting and managing people. This course has been designed to fill those gaps and provide you with the confidence to be proficient in these newfound responsibilities.
