    Graduate Diploma of Public Health and Tropical Medicine

    I chose to return to JCU and study the Grad Dip of Public Health and Tropical Medicine one year following the completion of my medical degree. I believe that JCU is the number one choice for anyone who is interested in regional and remote populations and advocating for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

    This course enriched my understanding and perspective of local and global health systems. It was a highlight to gain a broader perspective of health by learning from a ‘big picture’ approach. I loved meeting the lecturers and fellow students face-to-face and collaborative learning was a great experience.

    The biggest highlight while studying this course was meeting driven and like-minded individuals who were passionate about addressing the gaps in healthcare within their communities. The lecturers challenged me to recognise that through teamwork and outside-the-box thinking, big changes can be made to public health.
