The School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine (SPHPM) offers a wide range of postgraduate courses that give students access to flexible learning options and research opportunities.  Our programs are designed to prepare students for serving the community in an increasingly competitive job market and, as a result, Monash graduates are highly sought after by employers worldwide.

Monash is respected as an institution that embraces new ideas and opportunities as well as fostering a culture of innovation. We strive to engage with issues that are currently shaping the world and influencing human health and we are actively involved in public health projects globally. Taking part in our postgraduate courses in public health and related areas is exciting, challenging and intellectually stimulating.

With a strong tradition of success for nearly 30 years, the Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine and our collaborators, are at the forefront of postgraduate education in public health, clinical research methods, health services management, international health and occupational and environmental health.
