The School encourages health care professionals from many disciplines to enrol in graduate programs to advance their knowledge, skills and career prospects.

Postgraduate studies

In almost every area of professional employment today, it is beneficial to increase your skills and postgraduate studycompetencies, and wise to update your professional qualifications. As careers develop, health professionals are increasingly called on to contribute to decision-making processes (often within a multi-disciplinary framework), manage projects and budgets, ensure cost effectiveness, analyse and manage data, and maintain high quality standards.

We would encourage health care professionals from a range of disciplines to enrol in graduate programs, whether they are striving to advance their knowledge and skills, or enhance and develop their career prospects.

Postgraduate programs offered by the School of Medicine and Public Health include:
