In your first year, you will study health issues locally and globally, and the social, environmental, biological and historical factors that influence health in a population. In second year, you will develop skills in critical appraisal and research inquiry, measuring the size of health issues, causes and risk factors and the potential for prevention. In third year, you will look at health promotion, health systems and policies, health leadership skills and health research. Across the course you'll also study complementary units in Aboriginal health and communication and project planning in health. Central to the major is community engagement, through structured visits to health organisations, voluntary work experience programs and field trips. The major enables you to achieve knowledge and skills recognised as meeting nationally and internationally recognised standards.
