  1. Hello, I've read a lot of different information about coffee, and it's kind of ambiguous. Can you help me figure out if coffee is good or bad? Oh, and... ...I have a headache sometimes and I drink a lot of coffee, can it have anything to do with that?😥
  2. Hey all, Could use a bit of advice here--I'm still in the acclimation process to my grad program, and I have fallen sick with a bit of what seems to be a developing cold. I don't think it is terribly severe, but I do wonder if you have any advice for managing this situation when my schedule is dominated by coursework, teaching, and work at a side job for which I can't readily find a stand-in for my shift. Please let me know what your tips and tricks are?
  3. The first college I attended right out of high school was highly selective and elite. While I was there I started experiencing symptoms of schizoaffective disorder leaving me to have a psychotic break, C's in all my classes and an F in one class. I only spent that one semester at the school before moving into a mental hospital. 7 years later after years of working hard in recovery I am now enrolled at a new university with an almost straight A average with a few B's and two withdrawls. I am completely stable and highly functional. I am wondering when applying to grad school if it would be help
  4. Hi Everyone! I have a few questions about McMaster's MSc e-Health program. I read a few things about the program itself and it seems that it's still a little disorganized. However, I was curious as to what the program is actually like and how are the grads of this program are doing now? Also, how are the interviews? How competitive is the program? Also, I know that it says you need a B+ in your final year of undergrad. In my final year, I took a few of my general education courses, would they still include that in calculating the GPA? or would it be the GPA of fourth year courses. I
  5. Hi all, Is a score of 307 too low for funding consideration and/or admission? I am not great at standardized tests which is why I am debating retaking it. 5.5 Writing 153 Q 154 V My undergraduate GPA is 3.33 (3.60 in my major). Schools I am applying to: Michigan (Ford), Duke (Sanford), and Chicago (Harris). Thank you.
  6. Hi everyone Just wanted to start a topic for anyone who is thinking of applying for MHI with admission date of Summer 2019. UofT Application deadline: March 1, 2019 __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ I'm currently working full time in a health care association as a project lead. I have been in this position for 1.5 years. Previous to that, I worked 4 years at a downtown hospital as a research coordinator. My background is in nursing but my focus is on research. I have a
  7. I am still waiting to hear back from Portland State University for the fall of 2018. I applied for Health Management and Policy. I have waited roughly a month or so, I sent an email and I received an email stating I would hear by April 15th. Well, UMASS Amherst told me I have until April 15th to accept or decline their acceptance. Portland is my top school, the waiting is making me extremely tired.When should I send another email?Or should I just wait it out? Has anyone heard back from Portland? Has anyone been accepted into UMASS for their MPH?
  8. Is there anyone that had an interview at Uconn's health center for their biomedical sciences PhD program, and NOT heard back yet? I know they sent out some acceptances and rejections, but I have not heard anything.
  9. Hi all, I am admitted to Columbia University (Teachers College)- Mental Health Counseling E.d.M, and USC- Marriage and Family Therapy, Master I was thinking with a Columbia degree it will work great for me in the job market, no matter where I go. However, I did some research but some people said that teachers college is not as good as Columbia and some people even see it as separate or affiliated. So I'm not quite sure now. For USC it will work great because I'd love to work in CA and I will be getting CA's license and networking so that'll be nice. I want to work in the U.S. bu
  10. Hi All, I am admitted to Columbia University (Teachers College)- Mental Health Counseling E.d.M, and USC- Marriage and Family Therapy, Master I did some research but some people said that teachers college is not as good as Columbia and some people even see it as separate or affiliated. But I really like the name of Columbia. For USC, I've talked to someone who went there and seems like he liked it a lot. Anyone has suggestions? Anyone knows anything about TC?
  11. Will having any CEU's, CECH's, CHES's, NBCC's etc. help me get into grad school? I'm talking about accredited programs/websites, not MOOC's. I'm willing to pay if it'll help. Also do I attach the certification of completion to my resume (each certification is a page long), and how do I mention it on my resume if I have any completed so far? I'm interested in going for physical therapy school, and want to get some courses on mental health and general health, will this help me at all? Most courses aren't free. I'm still in undergrad, graduating next year, might apply for the next cycle in a few
  12. Long story short, my application for medical leave for mental health reasons was denied (thankfully I had this semester "forgiven" in a sense). I talked with my dad and after some back and forth he thinks I should drop out, take a year off, focus on work and my health, and then reevaluate my options next fall. Overall meaning delaying grad school by 2 years or so (assuming I don't start reapplying at this moment). Talking with my mother yielded the same result although she thinks I should somehow appeal the decision (not sure on how to do this since I was denied based on a technicali
  13. Hi All, Each year we organize a Summer School for senior undergraduate students. This year, the four-day fully-catered event will be from July 3rd until July 6th, inclusive. The Summer School will consist of wide-ranging talks on the theory and applications of data analytics & visualization given by program faculty and industry experts. This is a great opportunity for undergraduate students to learn about cutting-edge research in the big data science and network with subject matter experts and fellow students from other countries. We are inviting applications from exceptional stu
  14. Hello, Can someone please rank or describe the following programs (strengths and weaknesses or pros and cons): USC Annenberg Upenn Annenberg Cornell Stanford Northwestern Thank you so much!
  15. Hey all, Thank you in advance for the advice. I am asking a question for my girlfriend. She is applying to MPH programs with a low GPA 3.2 and ok gre scores. 152Q and 159V. She has 5 years of international work experience peace corps, ESL teaching, research in health. What are her chances of getting into Harvard, Columbia, Hopkins, or Yale for their MPH programs??? Also, I am having trouble finding a thread for this year's MPH applicant statistics so feel free to post your stats in the comments: GPA 3.2 GRE: 152Q 159V other relevant factors:
  16. Hi there, I am thinking about getting my Master's in Social Work in the near future. I have my mind set on becoming a Medical Social Worker and want to work in a hospital setting (With patients and their families). If there is anyone who is also going in the "medical social worker" career, please explain how your experience is so far? (ie: how are your classes?, what are you specializing in?, etc.) Also, I am looking into the University of Maryland, School of Social Work in Baltimore. I looked up the website and it states that there are many different specializations. I don't know which on
  17. HI all, Does anyone have any insight into the London School of Hygiene in Tropical Medicine's Global Health Policy program? I have done my research and was actually accepted into the program. It is entirely through distance education with an option to go to London and study at the school for a 6 week blended-learning option. There is an option for a project at the end, otherwise known as a thesis. I work full-time as a research assistant so this masters would allow me the time to build my professional career as well as my academic. Apparently, LSHTM has an outstanding reputatio
  18. Hello, I am a first-year PhD student. I want to ask about input on thriving. As background: in undergrad, I consistently had leadership roles in extra-curriculars, which helped balanced the necessary classroom focus. During Master's studies, I was also engaged (more participatory) in social and recreational groups. Now, as a PhD student , I would like to be able to connect better - it is strange, since more opportunities seem available than ever before, at my current institution. There is certainly a difference in rigor, but I have also never had so much time to focus exclusively on my studies
  19. Applicants are being sought for a half-time or full-time Research Coordinator position in the WELL Center (an expansion of the Laboratory for Innovations in Health-Related Behavior Change) at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA, under the direction of Dr. Evan Forman. Drs. Forman, Butryn, and Juarascio are conducting multiple NIH-funded clinical trials in the areas of (1) using innovative approaches to improve diet, health and weight, including new forms of behavioral treatment; (2) computerized "brain training" neurocognitive trainings; and (3) smartphone app-based machine
  20. Sampson (2006), in "A survey of public perception and response to heat warnings across four North American cities: an evaluation of municipal effectiveness", has found that "the effectiveness of the communication of safety precautions to different populations needs improvement". He also identified that "there is a need for more effective communication with people who are vulnerable that they need to be concerned about their safety". What do you think could improve this problem?
  21. Hello and happy holidays! I currently have less than a year before I will be applying to masters programs (hopefully attending Sept 2018). What can a undergraduate student do in the remaining time to become an ideal/competitive candidate for a MPH (or similar- MHA, MHS) program in Canada? Of course maintaining a good GPA is a must, so please comment suggestions for areas beyond grades! For my particular situation, I am concerned that I don't have enough relevant experience. While I volunteer in a health centre and have plenty of (unrelated to health sci) work experience, I worr
  22. I want to learn more about science and environment so that I can report on issues in these areas with more authority. I was a really good biology student in high school, but could not continue it. What programs can I consider now? I'm 26, and a fairly accomplished journalist with 5 years of experience covering pharmaceuticals and healthcare in India for an international news agency. Thanks in advance for any thoughts/ideas/suggestions.
  23. Hi all, I will be attending Northeastern University beginning this fall for Ph.D, I've come across something in the immunization report that could be very problematic however, so I'm hoping for some help. In the documentation, it gives the following instructions for the Hepatitis B vaccination: "Series of 3 doses: the second dose at least 1 month after the first, the third at least 2 months after the second and 4 months after the first." Since it's almost June, even if I get the first dose right now, according to the instructions, I will not be able to get my 3rd dose until October.
  24. Just wondering if anybody has applied to the Masters of Science in Community Health Science at the University of Calgary and if they have heard anything back in regards to acceptance? Thanks!
  25. Hi guys, For some time I have been reflecting on my decision to apply for a postgraduate degree. I have a MSc in Management & Policy Analysis (Holland) and I have been a visiting scholar in Epidemiology at University of Cambridge. At the end of the studies I worked in development (World Bank) and public health ( ECPC), focusing on monitoring &evaluation of behavioral interventions in health care. As I would like to move forward I realize I need to hone my skills in quantitative analysis, preferably in econ, and in behavioral science. Given that there are no behavioral economics pr
