Honours candidates will normally be jointly supervised by two academic staff with complementary skills and expertise. Supervisors may be drawn from any of the schools of the Faculty. The Honours research project itself can be undertaken at any approved University of Queensland location, hospital or health care facility.

  • the medical sciences
  • medical and allied health
  • public health
  • indigenous health
  • international health
