Shaping young leaders for the future of Australia’s health

The Australian health system is both large and complex, and bridging the gap between knowledge gained through health services research and its application to policy and practice is difficult.

Without evidence informed health policy, programs and policies at the local level, cannot benefit those populations who need them the most.

Opportunities to strengthen the capacity of emerging health leaders to be able to respond to current and emerging health issues are limited.

The Deeble Institute for Health Policy Research currently offers the only opportunity of its kind in Australia for PhD students and early researchers to acquire the expertise needed to become proficient health policy practitioners. 

This unique program empowers scholars to facilitate the knowledge exchange between health services research into government, while also allowing them to apply their policy skills in academic settings.

The Scholarship program at the Deeble Institute for Health Policy Research has effectively enhanced the intersection between health services research and policy. 

Scholars participating in the program have been instrumental in the development of health policy and have made significant contributions to the reform of the Australian health system. 

Their work, grounded in practical policy solutions, has played a crucial role in shaping and improving the healthcare landscape in Australia.
