  1. Thought I'd start the thread for prospective doctoral students applying to start in Fall 2021. I'm starting it early so we can discuss and support each other given the added challenges of applying during a pandemic. I'm applying for my PhD in Social & Behavioral Health programs.
  2. Hi all! I wanted to start a thread for prospective DrPH students applying before Dec 1 2020 for 2021 matriculation. I was browsing similar threads from previous application cycles and thought this would be helpful! I’m planning to apply to Johns Hopkins distance DrPH program. -MPH -East coast -I’ve worked in hospital epidemiology for 10 years, currently in a leadership role. Nice to meet you!
  3. I want to research vaccines for a career, but not immunology, I want to study the reasons people don't trust vaccines psychologically. But I also want to study psychedelics for treating depression and addiction. Any chance anyone knows if a ph. D in social psychology or public health would be better? Or maybe another program?
  4. Hello, I went through the DrPH 2019 thread and I found it quite informative. I will be applying for DrPH in Fall 2020 and thought to open this forum so others who will also be applying can join in. Looking forward to connecting to the others interested in this program.
  5. Hi guys! I’m entering the fall of my senior year and I’ve just decided to no longer pursue medicine and get an MPH. Because of this I’ve taken all of the hard chem and bio classes and it’s really done a number on my GPA... my first question is 1) where can I find some statistics on MPH admissions? I’m curious on my chances of getting accepted into the programs I’m looking at and at most I’ve seen a few programs state their average GPA. And 2) what are some good ideas for work experience to get in between undergrad and the MPH? I’m very open minded but I am interested in epidemiology.
  6. Hi all! Title about says it all, I'm trying to decide today and I've narrowed 5 choices down to a final 2 -- Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University and University of Michigan. I'm interested in human behavior and health education, with a specialty in sexual and reproductive health. Here are some factors: Emory + I went to a visit day and was really impressed - Have both a HBHE program and a concentration for sexual reproductive health under global health concentration - Expensive! I feel the material they've sent about how much the school costs esp in co
  7. Hi, I am a physiotherapist (India) with an MPH (UK) living in Canada. I want to pursue a career in Epidemiology. Although I have a masters degree in public health from the University of Brighton (UK), I m unable to find jobs in epidemiology. I reckon its because of the lack of experience in the field. I would like to do a course in epidemiology to advance my career. Could anybody who's already in the field, shed some light on this? Also, are online courses from reputed universities as good as on campus degrees? Thank you in advance.
  8. Just wanted to know if anyone has applied to any Canadian Public Health PhD programs for Fall 2020?
  9. Hey everyone just wanted to know if anyone has applied to any Canadian Public Health PhD programs for Fall 2020? I'm wondering if anyone has gotten an interview request yet or acceptance, etc.
  10. Hello, As Public Health applications will be opening soon (depending on when you're applying to of course) and being the thread for last year was already released months before this, I jumped the gun and thought a thread for us to discuss, share our thoughts, feelings, fears, and the trials and tribulations of Public Health applications would be helpful. I also find it helpful to know who's applying where I'm excited to start this journey and I'm hoping we all see acceptance letters/emails in under a year! Schools/programs I plan to apply to: UBC MPH UBC MSc in PPH (alre
  11. Hello, I am early in looking into PhD programs. I have a research based Master's in biology, emphasis on infectious disease. I have been thinking about a PhD in public health instead of bio, microbio, etc. I have experience working for the health dept. (briefly), teaching at the college level, and several publications. My question is, will I need an MPH first? Anyone go straight to public health PhD without an MPH or with more lab experience than health experience? Many thanks!
  12. Hi folks! First time posting on grad cafe! I wanted to continue the tradition and start a discussion forum for those applying to DrPH programs to begin in Fall 2019! We can use this topic to discuss and share our experiences through the application cycle.
  13. I recently completed my MA in psychology and am finalizing my application list for the Fall, 2019 semester. The research that I've done in my MA, and which I'd like to expand upon at the doctorate level, focuses largely on reproductive health, and doesn't fit squarely into the focus of most psychology programs. I've found the faculty interests of those at public health programs to be more resonant with my research interests, but given my background, I'm not sure if I'm a competitive enough candidate for public health-oriented PhD programs. I have solid research experience, six conference
  14. What factors should I consider when choosing which MPH program to attend? Or straight up tell me where you think I should go lol. I would be pursuing MPH in Epidemiology with a global health/social determinants of health concentration. I've narrowed down 3 schools: UMich-AA, University of Washington, and Columbia (Mailman).
  15. Did anyone apply to USF’s MPH or plan to go? Also, anyone already attending their MPH? I am looking for outside advice from others about the program. Any helpful info would be great. Thank you!
  16. Hello Friends, As this academic year is coming to a close, and MPH applications will be opening in just 6ish (months depending on where you're applying to of course!), I thought a thread for us to discuss, share our thoughts, feelings, fears, and the trials and tribulations of MPH applications would be helpful. I also find it helpful to know who's applying where I'm excited to start this journey and I'm hoping we all see acceptance letters/emails in under a year! Schools/programs I plan to apply to: UBC MPH UBC MSc in PPH (still need to start looking for a supervisor, ho
  17. I am trying to decide between the following programs: Emory MPH, Boston University MPH, University of Michigan at Ann Arbor MPH, and Duke MsGH. I have been accepted into all four and need to make a decision soon! I am ultimately deciding between Emory and Duke, but I do not want to completely eliminate BU or Michigan yet. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if there is a significant difference in the way a MPH or a MsGH (Masters of Global Health) is viewed in the job market or in academia. I am coming straight out of my undergrad and I ultimately want to continue my education after g

  19. Hey everyone. I applied to the following MPH programs: University of Alberta, University of Saskatchewan, Lakehead and SFU. I've heard back from Saskatchewan so far (yay!) I have a BSc in Global Health. My goal is to work in Health Promotion. I'd like to have temporary placements in different parts of the world (esp. Latin America), but my permanent goal is to work in Northern Canada (I'm from ON, but I currently live in NWT). Could you share some thoughts on these different programs? UofA: specialization on Health Promotion. Saskatchewan: seems great, doesn't focus
  20. I've recently been admitting to GWU and Colorado School of Public Health for Global Environmental Health. I'm receiving my BS in Environmental Science with a concentration in Public Health. I have had 2 years of undergraduate research in a lab. I'd just like to get some thoughts and opinions on what each school is like and which would be a better option? Thank you!
  21. Starting this thread since I haven't seen one like it yet. Has anyone heard back from University of Toronto Dalla Lana School of Public Health PhD Epidemiology?
  22. Just was accepted into both programs. From Colorado and interested in Epidemiology. Wondering if a big name program will make a big difference for jobs even though it comes with a higher price tag. Also, wondering if I would get the same education from Colorado even though its a newer program. Any advice is appreciated! Cheers.
  23. 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
  24. Hi, Thought I'd start this topic for 2018 fall applicants specifically for Public Health. I realise there is a general one for all applicants, but thought it might be useful to have one for just a Public Health field (in the most broad sense). I apologise if this post is redundant. I just wanted comments on whether my choice of universities were too strong. Although these were the only programmes which matched my interests. Feel free to comment/share your experience so far. Undergrad Institution: Imperial College London, UK (Top for science in UK)Major(s): Biom
  25. UGH! Is anyone else hating SOPHAS hard right now? I had a priority/early deadline of Dec 1., but because they are so tragically slow to process transcripts, I am STILL waiting for them to mail the application. I will miss the early batch deadline because a robot website made me late! Ridiculous!
