About us

The Centre for Rural and Remote Area Health (CRRAH) is a jointly badged centre of the University of Southern Queensland and The University of Queensland. The offices of the CRRAH are located at the University of Southern Queensland.

The Centre has provided research support through research and consultancy agreements with Department of Health and Ageing, the ARC, health services, divisions of General Practice and other non government organisations. Centre members are committed to seeking funding from all relevant and appropriate external and internal sources.

The Centre ensures that research outcomes are published as research reports as well as in reputable national and international refereed journals. The aim of these publications is to ensure that the research participants are aware of the research findings and recommendations, as well as contributing to the body of knowledge relating to rural health and health care delivery, both nationally and internationally.

The Centre trains research students and in 2010 has 20 Masters and PhD students including 7 Indigenous students.
