Healthcert supports the role that industry plays in developing and distributing health care information and services to doctors. A limited number of relevant trade partners exhibit during our events.
The curriculum, content and assessment is the sole responsibility of academic staff of the University of Queensland and/or our academic partners. As such our trade partners have no influence over content, and all funds from industry are received and managed by HealthCert. The University only receives a proportion of student fees. In this way we assure the academic integrity and independence of the courses.
