Healthcare and science are domains of the future.

• Health is one of the fastest growing sectors in Australia and around the world. People are living longer with more complex conditions and the human aspect of care will not be easily replaced by robots and AI. A healthcare career will give students satisfaction and help them become better individuals, knowing that they may have saved someone’s life or alleviated their suffering.

• Science advancements with applications in cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, medicine and other sectors are becoming indispensable in any company or enterprise.

AHSI aims to offer students a career for the future, a pathway to a successful professional life, where the skills and experienced gained in our courses and practicum can position them ahead of the competition.

AHSI offers a suite of healthcare courses which combine learning with practical experience and modern concepts in healthcare, cross-professional collaboration and research based approaches:
