Abstract: Australia has developed a national strategy to encourage an intersectoral approach to environmental health and the creation of an environment that promotes good health and prevents problems. This strategy has implications for the education and training of the workforce. Therefore, the authors conducted a survey of courses in environmental health and other courses highly relevant to the environment offered by Australian universities in 2000. The purpose was to determine the extent to which those courses meet the educational expectations of the National Environmental Health Strategy. Results of the survey showed that Australia's universities are not meeting all the educational expectations of the national strategy. These findings might prompt other countries that agree with the thrust of the strategy to review their own educational offerings.
