Study health sciences with us and we'll help you develop the skills to meet the changing needs of global healthcare. AUT is New Zealand's largest and most diverse health education provider.

Our population is growing and we’re living longer, increasing the need for dedicated and inspirational healthcare graduates. AUT's health sciences degree is developed with input from district health boards and leading health organisations. You can specialise in a specific health discipline or become a health professional in a non-clinical role.

Study the Case Management major in the Bachelor of Health Science degree and gain the skills for non-clinical case management roles, working with clinicians, clients and families to develop and oversee a plan of care.

Ageing populations and more people living with long-term conditions mean there’s a need for a co-ordinated approach to healthcare. Currently there aren’t enough health professionals with the skills to support such an approach. The Case Management major addresses this need.
