Epidemiology and Biostatistics

Mission & Objectives


Epidemiology and biostatistics involve the theory and application of epidemiological and statistical science to understand determinants of disease, to prevent and control disease, to analyse biomedical problems and to further develop public health research. Epidemiology and biostatistics can be applied to a wide range of public health topics, chronic conditions, mental health problems, and social behaviours. Students can apply their training to describe the frequency and cause of disease in a population, to analyse and evaluate risk factors for a condition and examine health data for trends and to determine the effectiveness of interventions. The programme is geared towards training biomedical and sociomedical researchers and data analysts for public health agencies. Many of our graduates continue to doctoral studies or work in government agencies.

BIOS5003 Categorical Survival Data Analysis (3 units)
EPID5002 Epidemiological Study Designs / Epidemiology II (2 units)
EPID5003 Analysis of Epidemiology Data / Epidemiology III (3 units)





Environmental and Occupational Health & Infectious Diseases

Mission & Objectives


The importance of environmental health and infectious diseases to public health is increasingly recognised in a globalised, interconnected world. Due to rapid globalisation, this is a critical area given health challenges such as infectious disease outbreaks, pollution, occupational hazards, food safety and climate change. Clinicians, hygienists, laboratory professionals and environmental safety officers need a complex range of technical and managerial skills to protect the health of populations. The modules under this concentration focus on understanding the health impact of environmental and infectious disease exposures, the prevention of adverse health consequences and the management of health risks. Many of our students have backgrounds in biomedical sciences, physical sciences, engineering sciences and even areas such as agricultural sciences. Our graduates often enter professions in environmental protection, food safety, occupational health, health policy or research.

Health Promotion and Social Behavior

Mission & Objectives


This concentration offers modules that address social and cultural factors that influence the health of individuals and communities. The central themes of this area of this concentration are: 1) to identify health interventions that can reduce health problems such as poor nutrition and addictions, 2) to develop and manage health promotion programmes, and 3) to provide support for individuals and populations to lead healthy lives. By applying health behavioural theories with public health assessment methodologies, students will be trained to develop, implement and evaluate public health programmes and policies. Many of the students who focus on this concentration come from nursing, rehabilitative sciences, psychology and education backgrounds. Many of our graduates work in community health promotion settings and nongovernmental agencies.

Population and Global Health

Mission & Objectives


Global public health is growing in prominence. Largescale migration, international trade agreements, urbanisation, climate change, international human rights and new integrated forms of global cyber-media all play key roles in determining the health in low and middle income countries. The need to address the health impact of disaster, to provide humanitarian aid, and to address the pervasive health inequalities that persist between high and low-income populations has never been greater. This concentration will allow students to examine these areas and gain familiarity with major contemporary global health issues. The concentration is multidisciplinary, integrating biomedical science, economics, ethics sociology, demography and policy perspectives. Students will have opportunities to put their skills into practice through international field studies and field action lab in rural China, Bangladesh, Bali and other regions. Graduates of this concentration often gain employment in international non-governmental organisations such as the Red Cross or work for international development organisations.
