Socially accountable health programs

The medical and dental programs at JCU have a distinctive regional mission with a focus on the needs of rural, remote and underserved communities, tropical medicine and the health of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islanders.
The School aims to lead positive change in health and medical care for communities of tropical Australia and beyond through socially accountable health education, discoveries, partnerships and advocacy that make a difference. Underpinning our work is a shared commitment to social justice, a passion for innovation and a commitment to excellence.
