Do I need health or management experience?

Previous experience in health or management is not required but is beneficial for applicants. The program is not suited to people with extensive management experience as it is a development program for future managers and leaders within the system.

How is placement allocation decided?

For the first year the program supervisor organises the placements, ensuring that trainees are exposed to a range of different aspects of the health system. Second year placements however allow trainees to participate in the decision of allocation, giving the trainees the opportunity to provide preference for placements.

What happens at the end of the program?

Once graduated trainees may be offered a 12 month contract in a management position from the Chief Executive.
