The Public Health program at Sydney Medical School focuses on the prevention of illness and the promotion of health, with practitioners playing a proactive rather than a reactive role, especially with regard to the coordination of relevant community resources. The program provides the opportunity to develop skills and acquire knowledge essential for the effective practice of public health, including the effective management of community health problems.

If you would like to pursue an international career in the area of public health, our program emphasises a modern approach to public health in low- and middle-income countries. Courses are offered at graduate diploma and master's degree level.
