SINGAPORE - Ten students enrolled under the Master in Health Administration programme at Parkway College of Nursing and Allied Health celebrated their graduation yesterday.

The students were the first batch to earn the master's degree at Parkway College, a two-year course developed in collaboration with Flinders University of South Australia.

The course is targeted at medical and nursing professionals, as well as administrators looking to enhance their management skills, the college said in a statement.

All the graduates are health-care professionals from the public and private sectors.

Ms Celene Ting, valedictorian for the class and who is an assistant manager in HCA Hospice Care's community-relations department, said: "The Master in Health Administration programme is unique and extremely hands-on.

"The ample opportunities we were given to exchange knowledge and insights with fellow health-care professionals strengthened our competencies and capabilities in our respective areas of work."

The master's students were among 148 who graduated from the college yesterday. The other new graduates hold diplomas in nursing and health-care management, among others.

Recently, Minister of State for Health Amy Khor said there was a need to invest in human capital and attract top talent in order to meet the growing need for health care from Singapore's ageing population. "We need to expand our health-care infrastructure and... increase our manpower capacity and capabilities," she said then.

Already, all 53 diploma holders in nursing from Parkway College have found employment, the college said in its statement.
