Why a Master of Public Health?

  • Working in a busy urban ED, I encounter clinical issues pertinent to public health on a daily basis. It gives a broader perspective on the challenges facing my patients. My MPH has also been useful in my extracurricular research projects, and I plan to pursue more public health-related emergency medicine research throughout my career.
  • NU's MPH allows you to see the big picture into which individual patient interactions fit. I feel extremely well-prepared to conduct clinical research and policy or advocacy work that will improve the health of my patients.
  • The MPH program at Northwestern gave me a broader lens through which to approach my clinical practice and research career...I strengthened my analytic skills and was exposed to a different view of health.
  • A fantastic experience!
  • Getting my MPH was one of the best career decisions I ever made!
