Course description

The dissertation allows students to consolidate and extend the knowledge and skills acquired during the coursework and apply these in a scientific way in a public health or (clinical) epidemiological context. It can form the basis of a paper publishable in a (inter)national peer-reviewed journal in the dissertation┬┐s topic area. Before enrolling, students must obtain permission from the program coordinator and have achieved a minimum GPA of 5.5 across at least 8 units of coursework, including at least 4 units from Part A. Students completing dissertations are unlikely to have their degree conferred until the end of the semester following submission of their dissertation. This course code is for full-time students who will complete the dissertation in one semester. Part-time students should enrol in PUBH7955 (if commencing in semester 1) or PUBH7957 (if commencing in semester 2).
