The July 2021, ACICIS Public Health Study Tour (PHST) will be offered virtually

This experience may require live attendance at lectures, webinars and group work sessions, at a time decided by the partner organisation. No special considerations will be extended to any successful applicant if an approved experience coincides with the commencement of Semester Two studies at UQ. We strongly recommend you consider the time zone differences prior to application. Attendance information can be found here.

The Public Health Study Tour (PHST) is a two-week intensive program for public health students to gain experience in the public health sector in Indonesia.

This virtual study tour will provide an introduction to the public health challenges currently facing Indonesia, including the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as existing government, international and community-led initiatives tasked with meeting these challenges. This is a unique opportunity for Australian students to hear from leading health professionals, policy-makers and community health workers in Indonesia, and to discuss approaches to health issues with Indonesian counterparts.
