This Master of Health Practice from University of Auckland is an ideal option for Bachelor of Health Science graduates to achieve a masters qualification in a short period of time. The entry to the programme does not need a medical science background.
Dependant on the specialisation you choose, there are a variety of work opportunities in health services, government agencies, non-governmental organisations and community groups.
Types of jobs for graduates vary according to the specialised area of practice. The specialisation in Addiction Studies can lead to service leadership roles in justice and correctional services and community and workplace services. Health Promotion can lead to roles engaged in developing local and national health policy. Pacific Health could lead to key roles in Pacific community organisations.
Population Mental Health can lead to jobs in the design and implementation of innovative community and public health intervention for mental health concerns. We advise that the University of Auckland is not involved in the employment of graduates and can make no guarantee of post-qualification registration or employment in New Zealand or any other country.
