In an exciting move into the business health sector, Edith Cowan University’s (ECU) School of Business and Law (SBL) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the AMA (WA).
The Association is in the final stages of developing a Diploma in Health Administration, and this partnership will allow the Diploma to expand into a range of programs at ECU that will provide expertise in the specialised area of Health Management.
The School of Business and Law’s Executive Dean, Professor Maryam Omari signed the MoU with the Australian Medical Association WA’s Executive Director, Paul Boyatzis.
“The School of Business and Law is pleased to partner with the Australian Medical Association. This is an exciting step for the School to work with the health sector, especially given our location in the heart of the Joondalup health precinct,” Prof Omari said.
Australian Medical Association WA Executive Director, Paul Boyatzis said the venture into international education was a result of a desire to promote best practice in all facets of health care, including leadership and administration.
“I am delighted that our College will be partnering with ECU in the delivery of contemporary health administration courses. This partnership harnesses the strengths of both our organisations as we look at offering a unique learning journey to both domestic and international students pursuing a career in Health Management,” he said.
“ECU’s history of delivering first class student experiences sits very well with the aim of our College to put the student and their learning journey first.”
