MASTER OF PUBLIC HEALTH SPECIALISATIONS
The following are recommended subject combinations for specialisations within the MPH. These are guides and are not prescriptive, however students should check to see if specific research projects have set prerequisite subjects. Students may obtain assistance in putting together their own interdisciplinary course plans from the course coordinator during organised enrolment sessions at the beginning of each year, or by appointment throughout the year.
MASTER OF PUBLIC HEALTH - DOCTOR OF MEDICINE SPECIALISATION
The Master of Public Health with a Doctor of Medicine Specialisation is offered to students enrolled in the Doctor of Medicine at the University of Melbourne. This program is designed for those students who wish to combine future medical practice with work that protects and improves the health of communities through education, primary prevention, reform and research. This recognizes the need to produce outstanding graduates that have the ability to address growing disparities in health care, health promotion and the global burden of disease. The MD/MPH is fully integrated, allowing students to undertake the MPH between the third and fourth year of the MD program so that they might develop public health interests as an integral part of their medical training.
