"While NYMC’s student population is relatively small, it is incredibly diverse—and that was very appealing to me. I also liked the idea of being in New York where I would be exposed to diverse public health challenges. I thought the chances of seeing the kind of challenges Nigeria faces—poor health-seeking behaviors, for example—would present themselves in New York more so than elsewhere in the U.S. Here, I would have a chance to learn approaches to handle similar kinds of challenges we face in Nigeria.
Spend your time doing two things: studying and connecting. The environment at NYMC gives you abundant resources to be a good student and succeed. Classes are in the late afternoon and evenings. Faculty is always available. The library is open 24 hours. Everything is in place for you to be the best you can be. "
"I decided to pursue Masters of Public Health and Doctor of Public Health at NYMC because of the quality education it offers, that links theory with practice. The school has a multi-cultural student community with a first class faculty that is committed and dedicated to the success of each and every student.
The graduates from these programs will contribute significantly in giving voices to the voiceless and enlarging greater freedom in the arena of public health and beyond."
"I earned my bachelor’s in dental surgery from India and practiced for almost five years in different healthcare sectors. Having had clinical and healthcare experience, I wanted to broaden my horizon and scope of knowledge. Working in healthcare settings made me understand the importance of public health. Thus, I decided to transition my career in the field of public health.
As an epidemiology student at New York Medical College I have learned to analyze statistical data and interpret the results. During my course I have had an opportunity to work as a Graduate Assistant at the Department of Public Health and as a Business Development Analyst Intern at ENT and Allergy Associates. In these settings, I have worked within the fields of business development – learning the importance of marketing; performing business analytics; evaluating the revenue cycle; coding data; creating business intelligence reports, and researching growth opportunities.
In addition, I am also an active member of student organizations. As the President of Student Healthcare Executives (StuHE) club, I represent the club at university-related events, including recruitment events."
