My interest in the field of public health is traceable to my aspiration to be involved in the improvement of other people’s health, not by direct engagement with patients, but rather a holistic approach beyond that.

I chose Hopkins for my MPH for several reasons. I was drawn to the caliber and number of faculty members and centers here, and the cutting edge research that is being conducted in my field of interest.

Charles Berko Master of Public Health Last Updated 01/08/2018

I chose Hopkins not only because it had consistently been ranked at the top of public health schools in the US but also its diversity; JHSPH makes every effort to have a representation from around the world. For an international student this is priceless, knowing that I will not be the only one on c...

Largest, most well-established (a.k.a oldest), and interdisciplinary department of Epidemiology I could find. Very convenient BA/MHS program for those of us from the Hopkins Homewood (Undergrad) campus interested in pursuing a masters degree, with plenty of degree and research options. Fantastic fac...

I chose Hopkins due to it's international reach and breadth of research. Hopkins is one of a handful of institutions that is always at the cutting edge of public health and medical research. What really appeals to me, however, is that Hopkins is constantly taking that research and moving beyond theo...

For its outstanding tradition in creating leaders well-equipped to solve the world's health care challenges.

Shawn Du Health Policy and Management Last Updated 04/25/2018

Several reasons: 1) Relatively small cohort size of PhD students in HPM (especially when broken down by concentration). 2) There's a lot of attention and focus given to the PhD students by faculty and your adviser. 3) Faculty easily approachable by PhD students for research opportunities, advice, an...

Ashley Arashiro Master of Public Health Last Updated 03/16/2018

I was accepted into the MPH programs at Johns Hopkins and Emory at the same time. They are both top-notch schools, but I chose Johns Hopkins for two main reasons: first, the curriculum is endlessly customizable and very flexible. While Emory offers rigorous core courses in epidemiology and biostatis...
