S. K. - NIGERIA - Consultant, Health Development
The modules have helped me in my work-related as a program officer implementing health project in a rural setting of eastern Kenya. I have created a network of friends that will last for a long time. This network will be useful in teaching career and share experience with new emerging information at global level. I will be able to access to latest research and emerging new developments and trends in the field of public health.
A. N. - CAMEROON - Team Leader, HIV Unit
I will utilize these skills in my public health practice to help me in looking at determinants of health from a wide perspective and also in my contribution in making evidence based public health policies....The knowledge and skills attained during the study of these modules will be of great use to me as a medical professional in public health and to my team of 24 officers who work under me in my current daily responsibilities.
Enrolling in this course has had a great impact on my ability to appraise and evaluate public health problems. I have learnt that research and planning are the bed rock of public health and besides the importance of combining research, healthcare professional and patient into a research team. I have used the knowledge gained in this course developed a health information search curriculum for the final year students of the School of Health Technology in my state. Also, I have been able to apply critical appraisal in solving public health interventions.
S. S. - INDIA - Surveillance Medical Officer, WHO
I will use the skills and expertise learnt from this MPH program to teach up-coming public health scientists with the desire to contribute to the poor and increasingly deteriorating public health situation in African countries where there is a paucity of well trained public health workers and most of whom cannot afford the high cost of public health training abroad.
D. O. - GAMBIA - Paediatrician, Medical Research Unit
I have been selected for the position of Nutrition Specialist with UNICEF. I must acknowledge the immense role PU-MMU played in enhancing my learning and skills. I am ever so grateful to all my tutors for guiding me throughout, and to the student support, helpdesk and IT teams for the backup support.
