    Master of Public Health Graduate and Young Victorian of the Year

    I loved being in a new place and meeting new people from the Master of Public Health. We had amazing professors and specialists teaching us tropical medicine. All the highlights from my time there are framed by the scenery and the experience of living in beautiful Townsville.

    Employer

    Barbra Kurkowski

    Area Manager (Townsville), Northern Queensland Primary Health Network

    I hire JCU graduates because they have a local context and knowledge of North Queensland. They have studied a comprehensive public health degree with diverse subjects, but local relevance. It’s very important for us to grow and keep skilled workforce in North Queensland.
