Level 2 Alice Hoy Building
There is growing recognition that the provision of services for young people is greatly enhanced by cross-sectoral/inter-agency practice. The Master of Youth Health and Education Management (MYHEM) is a joint program of the Melbourne Graduate School of Education and the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences. It has been specifically designed for professionals who recognise the need to create ‘joined up solutions' for what are obviously ‘joined up problems'. This applies particularly to problems concerning young people such as youth unemployment, drug abuse and homelessness. Teaching is informed by the current research of the Youth Research Centre, the Centre for Adolescent Health and the Student Wellbeing Unit.
MYHEM participants develop leadership skills that can be used in a range of roles and workplace settings. Current students in the course are leaders, managers and practitioners in the youth field; and nurses, teachers, counsellors and administrators in school, hospital, community and management settings. Combining advanced theory and policy studies with hands-on practical experience and research, MYHEM covers subjects such as Cross Sectoral Practice, Youth Policy and Theory in Practice, Research and Evaluation in Commuinities and Leadership in Youth Health and Education.
