Menzies School of Health Research Australia

Menzies School of Health Research is an independent research organisation which has research progams focused on Indigenous, tropical and remote health. It is the focal point for medical research in northern Australia.

The mission of MSHR is to improve the health of people living in northern and central Australia, and regions to the near north, through multidisciplinary research and education.

MSHR was established in 1985 as a cooperative endeavour between the Menzies Foundation, Northern Territory Government and the University of Sydney. Additionally, MSHR is incorporated under Northern Territory legislation and controlled by an independent governing board.

MSHR reports to the Northern Territory Legislative Assembly through the Minister for Health and Community Services, and also to an annual general meeting of the School.

MSHR is based in Darwin, on the grounds of the Royal Darwin Hospital, with a smaller unit in Alice Springs, co-located with the Centre for Remote Health.

Education and Training 

The Education and Training Division was formed in Semester 2, 2001 as part of the Strategic Planning Process of the Menzies School of Health Research. The Head of the Division is Dr Kate Senior who is also a member of the Senior Management Team. The Division reports to the Postgraduate Studies Committee which is chaired by the Director of MSHR.

The Division has three programs:
(i) the Public Health Coursework Program; and
(ii) the Research Training Proram
(iii) Short Courses

The Menzies School of Health Research is committed to increasing the opportunities available for postgraduate training for health professionals and for health education and training for Aboriginal people and the wider Northern Territory community.

The research and education programs of the School are particularly concerned with Aboriginal health issues, health in rural and remote areas and in tropical or developing countries.

The School's education programs are funded from both external sources (eg PHERP) and from MSHR core funds.

 

Public Health Coursework 

Degrees in public health are accredited by the Charles Darwin University and have been delivered by the Menzies School of Health Research since 1994. The multidisciplinary nature of the program and the diverse backgrounds of the lecturers and students results in a program which contributes to the broad view of public health that is maintained by the School.

Public Health Teaching 

The courses comprising the Public Health Coursework Program are offered through distance education. Enrolments since 2000 have included international students with some of these students travelling to Darwin and others electing to study in their own countries. Our collaborative working arrangements with the Flinders University of South Australia, University of Queensland, the University of New South Wales and the Centre for Remote Health in Alice Springs have contributed to the coursework program and helped to strengthen our links with these organisations. The program has been re-accredited for 2003 in line with the findings of the review of the Public Health Education and Research Program (PHERP).

Research Training 

The Menzies School of Health Research (MSHR) is committed to increasing the opportunities available for postgraduate training for health professionals and for health education and training for Aboriginal people and the wider Northern Territory community.

The research and education programs of MSHR are particularly concerned with Aboriginal health issues, health in rural and remote areas and in tropical diseases.

The academic standing of the Menzies School of Health Research was originally derived from its status as an extramural department of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Sydney. Our postgraduate students now enrol through Charles Darwin University. Student research projects cover a broad scope from molecular biology to population health and health policy.

Postgraduate research students are supervised by senior staff of MSHR and external supervisors when appropriate.

Courses on Offer

The Menzies School of Health Research will work across the higher education sector so that research students have the best supervisors for their projects. Students undertaking their research at MSHR must have at least one MSHR supervisor.
