Short Course Structure

Our short courses consist of a series of interactive workshops focusing on skills, knowledge and attitudes for application. Below is an example of the structure of our UNSW Health Management short course offerings:

Pre-work   Course prework will comprise of approximately 2 hours of pre-readings of relevant research papers, case studies or commentaries. In addition, students are required to spend approximately 1 hour creating a self-development action plan for use throughout the course.
 
 
Course   6 x 2-Hour engaging workshops through webinars over a 1-2 week block with critical reflections on evidence-based approaches through case studies. Focus will be on practical, take-away tools with interactive exercises and contemporary thinking which is immediately deployable in multiple healthcare settings and clinical contexts. You will hear from inspirational leaders in the field gaining their insights and lessons learnt.
