Testimonials

“The SVHNS Graduate Health Management Program has truly been a unique opportunity and incredibly rewarding. The two-year program has provided me with a vast range of skills and knowledge that I will continue to carry throughout my career, especially whilst working in the complex and challenging nature of healthcare. I feel very privileged to be part of an organisation that values their staff, and makes an important contribution to the health and wellbeing of the local community". 

– Peter, Graduate Health Management Trainee, 2020

 

“From finishing my undergraduate degree and starting this program I couldn’t imagine where I’d be now. From the moment you begin, you get to experience health from a different perspective, from helping to improve our care to running events that inspire our staff. I had the privilege to learn and rotate to other facilities in another Local Health District and experience different environments. At the same time, you’re also studying a master’s degree in Health Service Management, which gives you a unique opportunity to apply what you learn straight into you day to day work. It’s a real hands-on experience where you can enjoy challenging but rewarding work knowing that you can make a difference in not only the lives of our patients and community, but also our staff. For example, I worked on a project to introduce a corporate fitness membership for our staff and it was rewarding to hear the stories of how it made a difference in allowing staff and their families to work out together. The possibilities are endless, and it is what you make of it. I’d encourage those who are interested in health to apply.”

"The Graduate Health Management Trainee program at St Vincent’s Health Network Sydney provides an opportunity for people to find out what makes our services tick. Trainees get to work alongside key leaders in the organisation and rapidly become invaluable members of the team. Future trainees should be willing to learn in a diverse range of environments and not be afraid to get their hands dirty. They will work with a large range of key stakeholders across the organisation with each having something important to teach."
