How was your program of graduate study instrumental in helping you achieve your objectives?

“I came into the graduate program with the goal of specializing in health behavior and outcomes research. Having a structured core curriculum within the department; the flexibility to choose my specialized area courses outside the college; and the opportunity to work with a multidisciplinary team of scientists helped me achieve my goal in a timely manner. I had access to renowned, well-funded scientists, which exposed me to research from my first year of the graduate program. More importantly, I had great mentors who were genuinely interested in me succeeding.”

Why would you recommend that others should consider joining one of the programs of graduate study in POP?

“The department has a multidisciplinary team of scientists who are well funded, providing an outstanding environment for graduate students to learn.”
