The Master of Science in Health Administration from Flinders University aims to enhance the competencies of middle level health and aged care managers, equipping them to move to more senior management positions. In particular the course will provide the opportunity for students to undertake thesis research on an issue of importance to their industry. 

These aims are accomplished by utilising the expertise of our teaching staff (who are also experienced managers) and of health and aged care leaders in both the public and private sectors who lecture in the program. 

Progression to the thesis will be limited to experienced health or aged care managers who have completed the 36 units of coursework with a Credit or better. The 36-unit thesis will call for a close collaboration with the industry, and will involve the student in the identification of industry experts who may be prepared to provide field supervision. 

The course prepares graduates for entry to the Australasian College of Health Service Management and assists medical practitioners to enter the Royal Australasian College of Medical Administrators.


Across the world, the health and aged care sectors are experiencing substantial reform and are growing rapidly. These courses enable individuals from any professional background working in health-related areas to deepen the knowledge base on which their practice is grounded.
