Graduate Certificate in Geo-Spatial Health

University of Canberra

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Postgraduate
CRICOS: 00212K

This offering focusses on the integration of spatial data visualisation/analysis and health in health research. Students will learn spatial concepts and how to utilise a Geographic Information System. Students will also study concepts of biostatistics and epidemiology required for spatial data analysis. Students will then extend and apply this learning, utilising common large data sets. Finally, students will develop a work-relevant research question, and a methodology to address this question. Students will then execute this research project and report the results. This offering distinguishes itself from the majority of GIS-related offerings by its clear focus on the interaction of spatial, epidemiological and statistical methodologies, and health behaviours / outcomes. This offering is distinguishable from the very few other, health oriented courses already in the marketplace via its delivery structure (block intensive teaching and self-paced consolidation) and Graduate Certificate level of access.
