You do not need to undertake a full Masters degree or Graduate Diploma to improve your skills in public health. At the Sydney School of Public Health we offer short courses in selected areas of study. These can:
- increase your chances of promotion within your current workplace
- enable you to obtain the skills you need to transfer to a different position
- increase your competency and level of job satisfaction in your current position
