Health Scientists conduct research dealing with the understanding of human diseases and the improvement of human health. Health Scientists have skills in the biomedical and social aspects of health, including the physiology of disease, epidemiology, health care systems, health promotion, policy analysis and health sociology. They use these skills to work in public health and health promotion program management, policy development, or clinical or public health research. Employment opportunities exist in hospitals and community health organisations, government health departments, non-government health agencies and research centres.
