School of Population Health

Indigenous Health Acknowledgement

The School of Population Health and the University recognise the unique position of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia’s culture and history. That Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have inhabited Australia for well over 50,000 years and that their unique cultures and identities are bound up with the land and sea.

We acknowledge that the Aboriginal people, the Biddjigal and Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, are the original owners of the lands occupied and used by UNSW's Sydney campuses. In so doing it is important that the special position of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as Australia’s First Peoples is recognised and incorporated into the activities of the School.

The School of Population Health seeks to achieve this through observing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural protocols and the provision of services and programs appropriate to UNSW’s Indigenous medical students and other students who are focussed on Indigenous health and wellbeing.

We are proud to offer a Master of Public Health Specialisation in Aboriginal Health and Wellbeing, tailored for people interested in pursuing a career in Indigenous health.
