As health is a dynamic concept, you will further examine the social, environmental and biomedical determinants of health and wellbeing within an Australian and global context.

Global Citizenship entails deep appreciation of how we live in an interconnected world, being able to recognise the global context of concepts, act across cultures and boundaries, and work with diverse communities- now and in the future.
