The six core Indigenous public health competencies at the focus of this document are those required of every Master of Public Health (MPH) graduate. This curriculum guide provides suggestions about the integration of these competencies across both disciplinary and practice areas of public health rather than as a component of
a specific Indigenous public health subject. A specific rationale for curriculum integration is set out below
An underlying assumption of this framework is that coordinators of specialist Indigenous public health
streams or subjects can safely assume that students will acquire the six core competencies and their underpinning knowledge from the required public health subjects or units in their MPH program.
