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 Australian Medical Association (AMA) WA.
The AMA operate as a Registered Training Organisation and are in the final stages of developing a Diploma in Health Administration. This partnership will allow the Diploma to articulate into a range of programs at ECU that will provide expertise in the specialised area of Health Management.
Market research from the AMA suggests there is a strong demand for this program locally and internationally. The AMA is in the process of establishing a college campus in Joondalup and looks forward to working closely with ECU in bringing more international students to the city’s learning precinct.
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.”
Australian Medical Association WA Executive Director, Paul Boyatzis says this venture into international education is as a result of a desire to promote best practice in all facets of health care, including its 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.”
“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.”
ECU Vice Chancellor Professor Steve Chapman attended the signing ceremony at the Joondalup campus last week. Also in attendance were Jan Norberger, General Manager Vocational Education and Training, Noelle Jones, Director Health and Community Services, Janet Simmons Industry Relationships Manager SBL, Associate Professor Madeleine Ogilvie Associate Dean Teaching and Learning SBL, Professor Stephen Teo Associate Dean Management SBL, and Krishna Prasad Associate Dean Law.
The AMA WA and its associated entities provide a broad range of training services for business, the health sector and the community of Western Australia, including Certificate courses and Professional Development.
