The Doctor of Public Health (DrPH)  at the University of New South Wales is a three year full time equivalent program for candidates accepted into the UNSW Future Health Leaders Program. Individuals are nominated by their organisations, with acceptance into the program is contingent on selection by UNSW.


The degree will provide coursework and training in applied research skills relevant to Public Health.

The DrPH will involve intensive, structured coursework around the core competencies as well as practice-based placements in the field, and submission of a thesis. The course work includes one-day seminars and training days covering a range of topics such as Aboriginal health, cultural awareness, drugs and alcohol, health privacy, prison health, public health law and refugee health. 

The programme

This Public Health (DrPH)  at the University of New South Wales has been designed with relevance to the workplace as a priority. Applicants are employer-employee pairs where the employer has identified you as a future health leader in whom they want to invest for the benefit of the workplace. UNSW works with the employer employee pair to ensure the program and the professional doctorate reflect the needs and skills development required by both parties.

Traditionally higher degrees have focused on ensuring the development of research and critical thinking skills in individuals. Professional doctorates do the same, but reflect health practice in the workplace and also incorporate real time, real work benefits for candidates and employers. Because your research focuses on your workplace, you receive the benefit of being able to integrate your studies into your day-to-day work.
