Felicity Smith currently lectures in Postgraduate Epidemiology and Biostatistics and undergraduate Health Research Methods 1 and 2.

She moved into the Public Health Field after studying a Master of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, with a particular interest in Epidemiology and Biostatistics. She has furthered her expertise in this area with a Graduate Certificateof Epidemiology, focussing on Clinical Epidemiology.

Having begun her career as a veterinarian, working for ten years in private practice treating both production and companion animals, she has a strong interest in zoonoses (diseases that are transferred from animals to humans) and the OneHealth concept.  She is interested in communicable and noncommunicable diseases and social determinants of health, and particularly in applying Epidemiological techniques to the study of these areas.

Felicity has a strong focus on Learning-Teaching. This has developed through her involvement in teaching at JCU in a number of fields including veterinary animal handling, veterinary and medical professionalism, human and veterinary anatomy, and to her current role in teaching Health Research Methods at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and via external, semester and block modes.
