Step into a career in public health
The Graduate Certificate in Health Promotion is for those working in health, government, community or education sectors wanting to integrate health promotion, primary prevention or population approaches into their role or seeking a career change.
Keeping populations healthy and well requires innovative responses to ensure a sustainable future and health care system. As complex social and environmental public health challenges such as the COVID-19 pandemic emerge, there is a growing need for health professionals with health promotion expertise to plan, implement and evaluate appropriate responses.
You will develop health promotion knowledge and skills that you can apply in diverse sectors to promote the health and wellbeing of individuals, communities and whole populations. You will learn about the principles of health promotion and public health, and how to research, design, implement and evaluate evidence-based health promotion action in settings where people live, work and play, including communities, workplaces and schools.
