Message from the Dean

At Charles Darwin University, our vision is to be Australia’s most connected university by delivering the education, training and research that matters to the people of the Northern Territory, Australia and beyond.

The College of Health and Human Sciences leads CDU’s commitment to Australia’s health and community sectors. Delivering health education and research that is locally embedded and world class, we focus on issues of national and regional significance including the management of chronic health conditions, mental health, rural, remote and First Nations health.

We are currently developing a range of initiatives to support the health and workforce needs of the Territory. This includes a suite of new courses* designed to educate and grow the health workforce in areas of need identified by the sector. Our courses will provide innovative learning opportunities and supported career pathways to attract and retain quality health professionals in, with and for the NT.
