Monash School of Public Health & Preventive Medicine is a teaching and research unit of the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences and is centred at the Alfred Hospital Campus beside the Burnet Institute. It plays a prominent role in public health medicine in Australia. The Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine (DEPM) is the largest member of the School. The core skills of the department relate to epidemiology (the study of the distribution, risk factors and causes of disease) and its application to problems in clinical medicine and public health. The department provides a strong research capability in a series of areas of particular relevance to infectious disease control including large database skills, emergency care research, therapeutics (including clinical trials, post-marketing surveillance and pharmaco-economics).

It aims to also provide clinicians, health service managers, patients and other stakeholders with ongoing, risk adjusted, benchmarked feedback on clinical practice and patient outcomes, to improve the standard of care for patients with diabetes.
