School of Health Sciences

Summary

The World Health Organisation defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” The delivery of modern health care depends on groups of clinically and non-clinically trained professionals coming together in interdisciplinary teams who systematically provide personal and population-based preventive, curative and rehabilitative care services. Informed by active and successful research programmes, significant national and international collaborations, and academic staff who are of international standing, the School of Health Sciences offers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and research activities that respond to the dynamic nature of the health and education sector and its workforce. These include postgraduate programmes in Counselling, Specialist Teaching, and Child and Family Psychology, as well as various population health and clinical endorsements within the Postgraduate Diploma and Masters of Health Sciences. Welcome to the School of Health Sciences.
