Welcome to the Department of Public Health Sciences

Our department is home to four graduate programs (MSc Epidemiology, Master of Public Health, MSc Epidemiology (Specializing in Biostatistics), PhD Epidemiology) and many leading health research units. Particular strengths here include the study of cancer, its causes and its treatment, applied biostatistics and public health, mental health, developmental disabilities, injury, cardiovascular disease, and the health of children from local through international settings.

I am proud of our department, my colleagues and staff, and especially our graduate students. Our graduates have gone on to do important things, whether they be in the worlds of research, clinical science, or policy and public health services. If you are considering graduate or post-graduate training, we would encourage you to get in touch.
