    Student

    Helen Truscott

    Graduate Diploma of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene

    I chose to study at JCU as I had completed a master’s degree in public health here and wanted to delve deeper into health conditions of the tropics. JCU offered some unique electives that really piqued my interest. Alumni have networking opportunities across the world or could even return as a casual academic.
