breezyisaa Posted April 29, 2014 Share Posted April 29, 2014 (edited) I'm interested pursuing Public Health or Epidemiology, but I'm wondering if public policy is a better fit for my goals. Here's my background: BA Social Science from a middling public university GPA 3.43 overall, final two yrs 3.74 1st practice GRE: v 162 q 150 (I stopped half way through this section since I just need to study) Graduated early at age 20 and worked in public colleges and universities for 8 yrs 6 yrs as Assistant Program Director of research project of public university. Researched drug, violence, and adjudication prevention and interventions strategies for at-risk youth, as well as health interventions. I managed grants from DHHS, DOE, OJJDP, as well as state and private grants. 2 yrs as Signing Official with UC Office of Research. Reviewed and approved NIH and NSF grants for Emergency Med, Otolaryngology, Ophthalmology, and Surgery dept's. What I'd like to do is either implement/advocate health services for under-served populations within government (city or state level) or manage health intervention research projects, with a focus on social influences. Based on my background and goals, are there are any programs you suggest looking at? I'm thinking epidemiology is the route that leaves the most options open. What are your thoughts?
