Graduate Certificate of Dental Public Health
Oral diseases are amongst the most prevalent in the community. The study of dental public health seeks to improve the oral health of the population through population-level approaches and with a focus on areas such as social determinants, prevention, oral health policy and promotion.
The Graduate Certificate of Dental Public Health at the University of Melbourne is a partnership between the Melbourne Dental School and the Melbourne School of Population & Global Health and provides students with the opportunity to advance their knowledge of public health as it applies to dentistry and oral health.
The program is delivered in collaboration with a range of key public health organisations to provide insight and experience into the practical application of the principles of dental public health.
This course will be suitable for people in a wide variety of areas including clinical dental services, policy and government related areas and international dental health.
This course is only delivered part-time to cater to the working professional.
