  • Project - develop in-depth knowledge of the design and implementation of public health projects.
  • Public Health Informatics - learn more about the application of data and technology for public health practice and research.
  • Public Health Economics - advance your skills in analysing healthcare costs, cost-effectiveness/resource utilisation and health economics for public health practice and research.
  • Health System Management - explore human experiences in healthcare settings, including contemporary professional, ethical, social justice, political, consumer considerations and leadership roles, and utilise these for public health practice and research.

This program is also available as a graduate certificate and graduate diploma option.
