 Focusing on the social and ecological factors that affect community health, you will explore topics such as globalisation, urbanisation, climate change, changing demography, maldistribution of wealth and universal health care. In developing your understanding in these areas, you will be able to develop the skills needed to influence health outcomes in a wide range of professional community focused industries, both inside and outside the traditional health pathways.

In this innovative Graduate Certificate in Public Health from CQUniversity Australia , the origins and evolution of public health and the underlying principles of community-based and community-led public health will be explored. The social-ecological model of health forms the basis of the Graduate Certificate in Public Health and you will be introduced to complex adaptive systems thinking and how this influences the way we think about public health. You will also have the opportunity to select two electives from other public health units to best suit your interests and needs.
