PUN704 Health Management Internship

Based in a workplace, this unit takes an experiential approach to synthesise your knowledge of health care systems with your skills of investigation and analysis of complex information to contribute to professional practice and scholarship. This unit involves the planning and execution of a substantial work-based research project or equivalent capstone experience, by applying the principles and concepts studied across the course into the real world of health services delivery and health policy. A capstone unit is a point of transition for you, and prompts reflection and coherence to the whole course experience. Limited placements are available. Students are matched to placements based on placement availability and student competencies.
