Murphy Jade Linehan
Murphy Jade Linehan (Ngāti Porou) is studying a Master of Health Leadership specialising in Health Management.
“My desire to affect change is what led me to desire a career in Health Service Management especially in the areas of Māori health, youth health or addictions.
"My specialisation is health management and my courses are health leadership, quality in health care, health management, health economics and public policy.
I believe I will be better able to influence widespread and effective change from a leadership or management position.
“As a Māori student, MAPAS support and guidance has been invaluable to me. I completed a Bachelor of Health Sciences at the University of Auckland and MAPAS helped me immensely during my undergraduate degree.
"When I decided to pursue postgraduate study here, they were there to help me with enrolments and pastoral care, as well as a part time job tutoring other students.
“The Master of Health Leadership is a valuable qualification, towards the career I want. I really enjoy what I am learning, as it is accurate with what I will need to know in my future role.
“I believe I will be better able to influence widespread and effective change from a leadership or management position.”
