“A society of academic programs committed to the promotion of excellence in health service management education and research”
SHAPE’s mission is the promotion of excellence in health service management education and research in Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the Pacific.
The need for advanced skills in health service managers has never been more apparent. To achieve this, high quality academic programs in health service management are essential.
Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region are fortunate in having a number of undergraduate and postgraduate academic programs which provide University based education for people working in the health field.
