Public health

We deliver new innovative and applied public health education and teaching integrated with disruptive research to tackle today’s and tomorrow’s complex global public health challenges – cultivating the best equipped public heath workforce for the future.

Public Health at UTS understands that the world’s health needs are rapidly changing and much more complex.  Improving the health and wellbeing of our populations and communities - by preventing disease, health promotion and protection and reducing inequalities in health - will require greater trans-disciplinary and inter-professional efforts to address the social determinants of health, more health-systems based solutions and much more disruptive thinking.

To address these sorts of local and global challenges modern public health practice and leadership for the 21st Century must be agile and constantly changing.
