  1. Hi! I am a recent Master of Public Health graduate on the search for jobs. I had my second interview for a position I really want a little over two weeks ago (let me know if it would be helpful for you to know what the position was). I sent my interviewers a "Thank You" note immediately after I interviewed with them . They replied back thanking me for my time and for interviewing for the position and that I should hear back from a team member after they have completed the interviewing process. During the interview, they said that I should expect to hear back in a few weeks either way. I have not heard back since their reply to my "Thank You" email. I am planning on following up with them this week, but I would like some feedback on my follow-up email. My draft email is posted below: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Subject: Thank You: Following Up Regarding Interview Dear [INTERVIEWER 1] and [INTERVIEWER 2], I hope you had a great weekend and that this email finds you well. Thank you again for considering me for the [NAME OF POSITION] position at [PLACE OF EMPLOYEMENT]. I want to follow-up regarding my interview and candidacy for this position. During our interview, you mentioned that I should expect to hear back either way in a few weeks. I want to express my continued interest in the [NAME OF POSITION] position. What excites me most about this position is having the opportunity to learn about both global and domestic public health initiatives while sharpening my data management and analysis skills under senior biostatisticians. I would like to reiterate and emphasize the following skills and attributes that I can bring to the position and the [NAME OF TEAM] team. · Detail-orientation necessary to query data for completeness and accuracy and to prepare data and databases for statistical analyses · Experience creating surveys and entering survey data in REDCap and moving a project from Development to Production ([NAME OF EXPERIENCE] experience at [PLACE OF EMPLOYEMENT]); eagerness and aptitude for learning new programming languages and databases (SQL and Oracle) · Problem solving skills to understand and debug programming code · Scientific writing skills for contributing to data reports and statistical methods and results sections (Wrote Results section for [NAME OF STUDY] study and Results and methods sections for [NAME OF STUDY] study) · Organizational skills and ability to submit high-quality deliverables in a timely manner (Student Consultant roles) If you require any other information from me to help with your decision making process, please let me know. I can be reached at [MY PHONE NUMBER] or via email at [MY EMAIL ADDRESS]. If I don't hear from you in another week or so, would you mind if I send another follow-up email? Thank you once again for your time and consideration, Sincerely, [MY NAME] ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A person who suggested this template suggested that the subject line be: Follow Up to [INTERVIEW DATE] Interview However, I thought that reminding my interviewers of the date I interviewed with them would sound a little pushy, especially since I mentioned in my body that during the interview, that they mentioned that I should expect to hear back either way. Any thoughts on this? Any feedback regarding the content of my email will be appreciated! Thank you for all of your help, and thanks for reading!

  3. I entered my MPH program as a Community Health concentration (or its equivalent). However, now I'm having doubts about sticking with it because I'm afraid that it's not as marketable as other concentrations (ex. Epi/Biostats). I was considering switching into Epi/Biostats, but community health is a little more interesting in me (though I do appreciate aspects of Epi/Biostats). Has anyone else been in a similar situation and can offer some advice?
  4. 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?

  6. Hi All,I am currently applying for a place in an MPH course either at Melbourne or Monash and am seeking advice from anyone who has studied an MPH and/or works in the health industry to help me understand the differences between the two courses. I have attend both Melbourne and Monash graduate expos and read their course guides. I get the feeling that Melbourne has more elective options than Monash. Also according to the many rankings I have reviewed, Melbourne appears to have a higher “prestige” associated with the course and institution as a whole.I have decided to peruse a career change from a 23 year career in corporate and government ICT Project Management and Business Analysis and Architecture to a career in Public Health in a non-clinical area such as policy development, planning, programme management, evaluation or research once I complete the course.I completed 1st year Biology and 2nd year Physiology as part of my Science and Computing degree and have always had a passion and interest in working within the health industry. Over the years, through my volunteer work with Rotary, I have led and contributed to health related projects and initiatives locally and internationally.Several months ago, I had the great opportunity to complete a 6 week secondment with an Aboriginal Controlled Health Service through the Jawun programme. This experience inspired me so much that I have decided to transform my career and take a new turn into health despite having very little professional health experience.I would appreciate any advice, experience and recommendations.Thanks very much.ChilliMonkey
  7. 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!
  8. 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?
  9. How does NYU's Master of Public Health program compare to that of BU's? Also, is New York a better city to study public health or Boston?
  10. Hey! So I'm trying to decide between Boston University and Drexel University for a MPH. I am looking for opinions on the epidemiology programs in particular. I'm pretty sure I will be heading that route. Also, I will be focusing on the LGBT+ community. So if there are any current students that can attest to the quality of education, opportunities for community involvement and real work experience, job outlook, LGBT-friendliness, networking, general satisfaction with the areas.. umm etc. Any and all opinions are welcome : ]
  11. I got into NYU and BU's MPH programs, but I'm having a hard time deciding which school to go to. I'm thinking of pursuing community health, though I may want to switch concentrations once I take the core classes. Does anyone have any tips? Thanks!
  12. How is student life at the Boston University School of Public Health? Do people feel that they are constantly stressed? How is the workload? Do people feel that they have free time to pursue extracurricular activities?
  13. Should I be pursuing a Master of Public Health degree if I'm not entirely sure where I want to be in public health?

  14. How is CUNY's Master of Public Health program? Also, if I submit my commitment deposit, is it okay to submit a deposit to another school as well if I get accepted?
  15. How is the MPH program at the CUNY School of Public Health?
  16. How is CUNY's MPH program?
  17. I got accepted into a MPH program. However, I'm waiting for other schools to get back to me. The issue is that the MPH program that I was accepted to expects me to turn in a commitment deposit 3 weeks after I have received the acceptance notice. Just out of curiosity, would it be an issue if I paid the deposit to secure my seat, and then decide to pay the deposit for another school if I get accepted there?
