Healthy and Sustainable Agricultural Communities (HMF702) is a postgraduate level unit offered through Deakin University School of Medicine and is a core unit of the Graduate Certificate of Agricultural Health and Medicine (H522).  Running from 13th July – 2nd October, 2015, HMF702 can also be undertaken as a single professional development unit as, or an elective in a number of postgraduate courses. HMF702 is completed entirely online.

HMF702 looks closely at how living in a rural and remote community impacts on the determinants of health.

The scholarships are valued at $800.
