Students propose and complete a public health practice project through which they apply cognate discipline knowledge, problem-solving capability, and applied research skills to develop recommendations for a contemporary public health topic proposed by local partnerships. The unit is designed to not only consolidate knowledge and skills but to integrate theory and practice in an authentic and contextualised learning experience. The emphasis on stakeholder engagement, presentation and communication of findings is intended to create a translational experience to a ‘real-world’ public health organisational context.
