If you are a health professional and you want to upgrade your skills, choosing a Graduate Certificate of Public Health will help you to develop core public health competencies. You can continue to work as you study at James Cook University (JCU), as this course is offered externally or via a mix of external and limited attendance and block mode study at JCU's Townsville campus.
