  1. Hi, I am evaluating changing career into public health focused on global health and sustainability. I have had multiple good school (think JHU, GW, Berkeley) and got good advice. I wanted to reach out to this community and get other perspectives as well. I do not have a traditional public health background but do have over 20 years of experience in management/strategy consulting and recently "ventured" into sustainability working on the people health. My intent is to bridge the gap between private sector organization and public health and help organizations connect the "triple bottom line" to health of the employees, develop strategies, programs and initiatives, and develop measurement criteria to evaluate business impact. I have a bachelors in engineering, masters in management (strategy) and an MBA from top 10 school with a decent GPA. I have not taken the GRE yet and need to start preparing for it. I am focusing on part-time programs (preferably Dr PH) since cannot do any full-time ones, given my family commitments. Does anyone have any ideas or thoughts around how my profile would fit in for some of the top programs and what kind of GRE score would I need to get to compensate for my lack of PH background? Thanks in advance. Zman.
  2. Hi All! I am a recent graduate (c/o 2016) interested in pursuing a Masters and/or PhD in Urban Planning in Fall 2018 (Interested in merging Public Health and Analytics - Using City/Regional data to create healthier spaces) Undergrad Major: Global Health and Environment, 3.39 GPA (3.76 major GPA) GRE: Haven't taken it yet, but I'm a decent test taker and will probably score in the upper 70s or mid/lower 80 percentile) Programs: Columbia GSAPP's MSUP (Urban Analytics), UC Berkeley, I have spent the past few months interning at public health organizations (domestic & internationally) Here are my questions: (1) Do I have a chance at getting into Columbia and/or Berkeley? Are there other graduate programs that focus on data? (2) Considering more competitive applicants with higher marks, is it possible to receive a scholarship or RA-ship funding for a graduate program with my grades? How can I become more competitive? I don't know anyone in real life who is in UP, which is why I'm here. Anything is better than nothing, so please please impart some knowledge! Thank you! **Also please do the poll above to help me be more competitive,
  3. Which school has a better MPH program, George Washington University or Boston University? Specifically which school has better Community Health and Global Health programs? Thanks!

    MPH

    The Uni of Alberta does not require Statistics or GRE for MPH. But, implying a preference for it. Please, help me with which of these would not require statics; Epidemiology, Food Safety, Global Health, Health Policy and Management, Health Promotion?
  5. I'm interested in obtaining a MPH in global health, but also considering social behavior / urban health tracks, depending on what the university offers for its programs. I'm specifically looking to study a field that addresses health disparities and social justice for minorities (I have a particular interest working with refugees). Right now I am considering 6 schools based on their program offerings and their locations. I want to pursue a degree where there is an opportunity to work with refugees and establish connections I can leverage once I complete my degree. The schools I have on my list so far are Boston U, Brown, George Washington, Yale, University of Maryland and Rutgers. I'm curious to know thoughts about University of Maryland's program, to see if it's worth applying to two different schools within the DC region. I'd also love to hear thoughts on any other schools in general, either in my list or not! I've read a lot of posts that have been helpful, but I'm always open to hearing some words of advice.

    Boston University MPH 2017

    I was admitted to the Boston University Master of Public Health program! Just out of curiosity, are any of you still uncertain about the concentration you've chosen? Do you think you might change your concentration after completing some course work? I'm just wondering if anybody else is in the same situation as I am. Should I be pursuing a Master of Public Health degree if I'm not entirely sure where I want to be in public health? Would it be an issue to enter the program and then explore where I want to be in the program? Is it a common occurrence, or do people usually know what they're doing 100% when they enter the Master of Public Health program?
  7. I am researching graduate programs and am trying to find something that fits my growing interest in the field of humanitarianism, human rights, disaster response, etc. while also addressing my passion for anthropology and global public health. USF has an MA-or-PhD/MPH option combining these things, but I'm having some trouble finding many other universities that offer extensive training and education in all three areas. Another factor making this search a bit difficult for me is my interest in focusing on infectious diseases. Can anyone out there offer any advice in where else I could look? Thanks in advance!!
  8. One of the main reasons that I am pursuing a PhD program is to fill a large research gap (Maternal Mortality and Morbidity in MENAP; mostly Farsi-speaking areas though). But, there's a large gap there because not many people are researching it, which makes finding faculty to talk to, and eventually work with, very difficult. I know to look at faculty that are working in global maternal health, or working around the Middle East, but any other ideas? What about faculty from other disciplines - Nursing/Anthropology/International Policy? Thanks, RP
  9. NYU is my top choice because I was admitted to a dual degree program so in three years I will have an MPH/MPA vs. a two year MPH from the others. The MPA comes from a top 10 management and policy school. I also want to live in NYC sometime and networking opportunity is endless! Tuition at all institutions is in the same range. My dream is to have a foreign service career but I know how competitive it is. I would aspire to a leadership role with International NGOs and government agencies as my fall back. The extra year for the dual degree, as well as NYC cost of living makes NYU by far the most expensive. I didn't get any scholarship to NYU. But it's my favorite. Emory has a great reputation in PH, I got a medium sized scholarship, cost of living in Atlanta is way less than NYU. Washington University is a great school, but their MPH program has only been accredited since 2012. They gave me the biggest award, nearly 50% tuition. Super cheap living costs So, is the three year dual degree worth the extra year of tuition at NYU, plus lack of financial support? Should I be concerned about Wash U's new MPH program being underdeveloped?
