Southern Cross University aims to create research and research training that has regional relevance and global impact.

By studying a Doctor of Philosophy (Health) with the Faculty of Health, you can focus your research from a choice of disciplines. These include nursing, midwifery, occupational therapy, speech pathology, podiatry, pedorthics, clinical sciences, clinical exercise physiology, exercise science, psychology, cognitive neuroscience, naturopathic medicine and public health.

One of the great strengths of our research is its level of engagement with local and regional health service organisations, sporting institutions and peak bodies, private providers and schools.

These partnerships guide the development of industry-relevant research and promote the translation of research into practice.

Academic staff in the Faculty of Health can provide supervision for various discipline areas. Please search for a supervisor on our Find a Supervisor page.
