Public Health at Curtin University: Jo Crothers

Photograph of studentsThe School of Public Health is one of the largest and most diverse in the University.  It provides education for public health professionals and provides additional skills to health professionals in clinical practice.  The discipline of public health seeks to improve the health and well-being of the whole community. It concentrates on activities that promote well-being, such as nutrition, physical activity and a healthy environment. In more recent years, population-based techniques developed for disease control in the community have also been applied to managing an increasingly complex health system. 

The School of Public Health provides education and undertakes research in all areas of public health, including the management and evaluation of health facilities and techniques for improving health communications, as well as the more traditional areas of public health.  Many international health professionals have successfully completed relevant postgraduate degrees through our distance education programs. 

The School is acknowledged internationally as a leader in public health research, particularly in health promotion through the Western Australian Centre for Health Promotion Research, as well as in nutrition, aged care, international health and occupational health. Our membership of the Asia Pacific Academic Consortium of Public Health allows us to maintain active links with the top 47 public health schools in our region, with which we promote collaborative research and student exchanges. The Master of Public Health provides population health skills for all health professionals and can be undertaken by coursework or by research. An emphasis on international health is possible. Similarly, the Master of Health Administration provides the management and planning skills needed by many health professionals.


The School is located in a state-of-the-art building, one of the largest and best equipped public health educational facilities in Australia. It has extensive information technology facilities available to all students.  Laboratory facilities are provided for postgraduate research students working in such areas as food science, food product development, nutrition, and environmental and occupational health. Postgraduate research students have their own computer and study area, and the computer laboratories have software for dietary analysis, disease classification casemix and other specialised public health functions. Specialised equipment for analysis of human exercise performance and studies involving human nutrition is also available.
