Graduate Certificate in International Health and Development

Postgraduate Course

About this Course

Tabor seeks to make a positive impact in the world, through our extensive curricular offerings and our values.  Tabor’s Graduate Certificate in International Health and Development is imbued with the Christian values that have forged our college’s reputation over many years.

This qualification has been specifically designed as an introduction to the practice of health and development in global contexts.  An online Foundations subject leads into a two-week summer intensive covering Public Health and Clinical Care. The intensive is a powerful time of community learning involving health professionals from around Australia and the world. A further subject in Poverty and Community Development completes the Graduate Certificate requirements.

The Graduate Certificate offers relevant training and experience to health and development professionals who desire to be equipped for culturally intelligent health care in less developed and under-resourced environments, in Australia and overseas.

The Graduate Certificate is a fully-accredited qualification when taken for credit.  Individual subjects may also be audited (no assessment and reduced fees).

Professional Outcomes

Graduates may find employment with local and international NGO’s (faith and non-faith based), international health and development organisations (e.g. WHO, UNICEF, UNDP) and government agencies involved with health and development (e.g. AusAID).  The Graduate Certificate also provides an ideal basis for further post graduate study in international health and / or development, including Tabor’s Graduate Diploma in International Health and Development.
