Master of Adolescent Health & Wellbeing

Australia’s only postgraduate course in adolescent health is run via online education from the Centre for Adolescent Health at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute and The Royal Children’s Hospital.

Accredited through the University of Melbourne, this program offers a Graduate Certificate qualification, a Graduate Diploma and a Master of Adolescent Health and Wellbeing. This program takes students from foundation subjects, through specialisation and finally into research.

Students explore the developmental, psychological, social and environmental issues that have an impact adolescent health. A Master/Graduate Diploma of Adolescent Health and Wellbeing qualification ensures graduates are well-equipped to deal with and help improve life outcomes for young people, their families and the community.

Masters students learn about the evidence base for effective programs and practice in the areas where young people live, learn and socialise and in the healthcare sector where young people seek support.

Of all the age groups in Australia, young people are the only population group whose health has not improved over the past three decades. The Centre for Adolescent Health recognises that a key way to improve young people’s health and wellbeing is to enhance the capabilities of practitioners who work with young people.
