International Health Independent Study - MIPH5037

This is a capstone unit only available to students with substantial international development project management experience who do not wish to do MIPH5219 or MIPH5220. This unit gives students the opportunity to undertake a special project in an area of interest in international public health. Students research their chosen topic or analyse data already collected. The project can be done as part of a placement with an international aid agency or with relevant sections of health services overseas or in Australia. Students arrange with an international public health academic to be their supervisor on the project. Students write a 4000 to 6000 word report on their project; the report should be in a format suitable for submission for publication in an a academic journal.
