A few weeks ago, I provided a handful of public health resources.

Here is another highly recommended resource and its official blurb:

Question markIt’s time for another edition in our monthly series: “What You’re Asking.”

Here’s how it works: I scope out emails sent to jhsph.admiss@jhu.edu and tally the most frequently asked questions. I then answer a couple of the most popular questions here.

This month’s tally revealed that we have come full circle in the application process. We in admissions are preparing to welcome new students to orientation, but many of you are just beginning this process. You’re asking:

I’ve recently discovered the field of public health and want to learn more, where do I start?

Right here!

I’ve done my best to share as many resources as I can on this blog, but there are many more. Here are a few to get you started

What degrees do you offer?

The Bloomberg School offers nine public health graduate degrees. These degrees include our Schoolwide Master of Public Health (MPH) as well as a plethora of degrees offered by ten academic departments!   

With so many degrees and opportunities, the resulting alphabet soup can be confusing. So, make use of the resources above, thoroughly review our website, narrow your interests and then contact the academic coordinator for the program that truly calls to you. 

If you have trouble locating a contact or have a question, we’re here to help!

Best wishes to you on your public health journey!

Spring 2014 magazineHave you seen the latest issue of Johns Hopkins Public Health?

The Spring 2014 issue of the School magazine is filled with compelling public health stories.

From the horrors faced by asylum seekers in the Sinai to new discoveries in the fight against prostate cancer, it’s a page-turning read no matter where you are in your public health journey.

Fall magazine coverLast Spring, we profiled the award-winning Johns Hopkins Public Health magazine. In that post, we recommended the publication as a resource for prospective students.

We still recommend it!

The magazine is a wonderful way to see the breadth of research our School is conducting all over the world. The latest issue (Fall 2013) covers women’s health, a Native American summer camp, asthma, global health communications and dowry violence in India.

Check it out!

Do you know where this is?

Welch Library

I gave you an enormous hint (enormous = over a foot tall).

It’s a bit of architectural detail on the Welch Medical Library.

Founded in 1929, the library was created to centrally serve the School of Medicine, School of Hygiene and Public Health, and the Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Today’s Welch is located across Monument Street from the Bloomberg School of Public Health and provides students, faculty and staff with a wide range of services including classes, consulting, collections of online full-text journals, interlibrary loans and document delivery services.

A great deal of the modern Welch resides not on Monument Street, but online. You don’t need to schedule a campus tour to check this campus landmark out!
