What has attending school at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health helped you achieve?

Attending the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health not only provided a holistic approach to understanding the US healthcare system, but also gave me project-based experience in solving complex healthcare problems. The combination of Gillings’ faculty and staff, who bring a wealth of public health experience and knowledge, with a rounded course load gave me the skills and education needed to succeed in the real world.

What are your words of wisdom to current students in Health Policy & Management department? 

You’re probably not going to land your dream job right out of college. Spend time in the HPM department and the first few years after graduation soaking up as much information as you can. Don’t be afraid to switch companies or take a new opportunity earlier on in your career – the payout could be huge.
