Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
The Graduate Diploma of Public Health is part of the CQUniversity suite of Public Health courses. It continues the application of a social-ecological model of health to public health education. This model which is strongly aligned with contemporary trends and challenges in public health provides the basis of innovative interventions for social change. Unlike other Public Health courses that traditionally focus on the medical model of health, the Graduate Diploma of Public Health at CQUniversity also incorporate a social perspective of public health skills, knowledge and practice. The Graduate Diploma of Public Health has more depth of content than the Graduate Certificate in Public Health and includes a multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary opportunity for students to combine public health studies with another field of study.
