Graduate Diploma of Public Health

Public health is a broad area which can be generally characterised as being concerned with improving health and wellbeing by carrying out actions that will have an impact at a population or 'whole of community' level. Current Australian priorities for public health are to reduce health disparities between different population groups and to positively influence social, economic, physical and biological factors that play a role in determining overall health outcomes.

Public health practitioners are health professionals who have the skills required to help individuals and communities to have greater control over their health and wellbeing and to influence organisational and political environments in ways that lead to better health for all.

Additional Course Information

Students who are considering enrolling in the Graduate Diploma of Public Health, however, are uncertain about their ultimate career direction within the public health workforce are encouraged to select the Public Health Methods specialisation as this offers a broader opportunity for competency development.
