Population Health at RSPH dates back to April 1987 when the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health (NCEPH) was established, but has entered a new and exciting phase. Our School came together from related groups in 2012 and now includes all academic centres’ that focused on epidemiology and population health from across the College of Medicine, Biology and Environment.
Here, we are committed to training the next generation of researchers and population health practitioners who will generate and translate knowledge into action thereby improving and sustaining the health of our population.
RSPH draws faculty and participation from many different areas of population health research and this mix of professions and disciplines connects our faculty in a way which enhances learning and galvanizes the relationship between teaching and research. The School is among the most research-intensive units at ANU and students will therefore have the opportunity to learn from and work with faculty who are renowned in their fields of research.
