Division of Tropical Health and Medicine
Through research, teaching and engagement activities, JCU's Division of Tropical Health and Medicine (formerly the Faculty of Medicine, Health and Molecular Sciences) is at the forefront of improving health in rural, remote, Indigenous and tropical communities within Australia and world-wide.
Since its establishment in 1997, the Division has grown substantially and now offers a large selection of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in medicine, public health and tropical medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, allied health and rehabilitation sciences, biomedical and molecular sciences, veterinary sciences and sport and exercise science, with a particular focus on the health of rural, remote and Indigenous communities and tropical medicine. These disciplines are structured within three Colleges and a research centre:
- College of Medicine and Dentistry
- College of Healthcare Sciences
- College of Public Health, Medical and Veterinary Sciences, and
- Mount Isa Centre for Rural and Remote Health (MICRRH)
MICRRH delivers multidisciplinary education, training, research and advocacy in rural and remote health, and offers clinical training capacity for health professional students undertaking rural placements.
