After the firestorm: the health implications
Returning to a bushfire zone.
In the College of Health and Medicine, we aspire to meet the healthcare needs of an ageing population, reduce the burden of preventable chronic disease and deliver convenient and affordable health services while improving consumer engagement in healthcare.
As the University of Tasmania, we’re in a unique position. We are the only university in the state and as such, we benefit from close links with our community, our health system and our health professionals. It’s through these close links that we have built a lasting reputation in health professional education and translational research with a local, national and global impact.
The School of Health Sciences specialise in nursing, midwifery, allied health and rural health.
The School of Medicine encompasses the divisions of medicine, paramedicine, pharmacy and psychology.
Menzies exists to perform internationally significant medical research leading to healthier, longer and better lives for Tasmanians.
We face a crisis in healthcare across the world. An ageing population and growing incidence of preventable chronic disease threatens to overwhelm our communities and healthcare systems.
Researchers in the College of Health and Medicine are taking a multi-disciplinary approach to addressing the needs of people in Tasmania and further afield in the prevention and management of chronic diseases, particularly those associated with ageing.
We offer a range of study options in Undergraduate, Postgraduate, Research and Health Professional Development.
