This research degree provides practice based, supervised research training through embedded coursework and the completion of a substantial research program applicable to real world, national or international population health issues, in order to develop public health workforce capacity and as a pathway to further learning.

Content & Structure

This research degree includes four core courses and a program of original research leading to the submission of an externally examined thesis. The program of original research affords an opportunity for a workplace/institution or collaborator to be involved in a substantial research project, which could include the development and pilot testing of a new health promotion/service initiative, evaluation of a currently existing health service, or exploration of a health-related situation. Topics could be volunteered by workplaces, ie the project could be "sponsored" by a workplace. This opportunity can include placement within departments or sites.
