This is free thinking logo in white

Whether a health degree at Murdoch is the start of your career or a step forward in your current career, you'll learn the skills to turn your thoughts into actions. It's an open-minded attitude that's led our free-thinkers to develop programs that improve the mental health of new parents in indigenous communities, discover how exercise impacts Alzheimer's patients and find the link between ticks and the mysterious Lyme disease.

Where could a health degree take you?

New treatments require new thinking. That’s why we offer evidence-based healthcare degrees, encouraging our students to re-think the way society approaches global health challenges. You’ll combine the power of science and creativity to learn new ways of improving patients’ lives, both in and out of clinical environments. With a health degree, you can pursue careers including public health, community health and the private sector.
