Are you interested in advancing your career in Public Health with further study, but aren’t sure what options are available now you’ve completed your undergraduate degree in Health Sciences?
The University of Adelaide School of Public Health is the largest school of its kind in South Australia and is recognised locally, nationally and internationally for excellence in teaching and research across various fields of Public Health. Our senior academic staff are leaders in their fields – in areas such as Child Health and Development, Life Course Epidemiology, Genetic Epidemiology, Health Technology Assessment, International Health, Economic Modelling for Health, Health Impacts of Climate Change, and the use of deliberative methods in health research. Our teaching and research inform each other in a creative and productive relationship: all our top researchers teach and our top teachers conduct research.
There are a number of different pathways you may want to consider for your further study in the School of Public Health.
1) Honours, Bachelor of Health and Medical Sciences;
2) Master of Public Health (MPH); and
3) Master of Philosophy (MPhil)
Each program has its characteristics leading to professional development and career opportunities in public health.
I invite you to the School of Public Health’s information session where you will be able to find out more about these three programs. This will be held on Thursday, 15 October at 4:30 pm on level 7, 178 North Tce, and many academic staff, including these who are responsible for coordinating these three programs, will be available to answer your queries and discuss possible projects with you, and how you might start to build your career in Public Health.
In the meantime, please contact the following academics if would like to have a chat about the best option for you.
I look forward to welcoming you in 2017.
