Overview

The Disaster Health Care postgraduate program is designed to provide students who are working in health care, whatever their professional background, with the opportunity to acquire a body of theoretical and practical knowledge and skills in disaster health care and to apply these in a range of disaster response situations.

The course builds on students’ current workplace and/or disaster response experience and enables them to proceed, if they wish, to further graduate-level coursework.
