Profile: Karina Gunarto
Karina Gunarto from the USA studied the MSc in Medical Parasitology.
"As a returning student, it was initially a challenge at the start of the program but I soon realized that I was surrounded by an abundance of support from professors, personal tutors, fellow classmates, and other LSHTM staff. The school's cultural diversity is one of the features that sets LSHTM apart from all other graduate schools.
I specifically chose the MSc in Medical Parasitology because of its emphasis on parasitic diseases as it relates to tropical medicine and public health. It's been such a rewarding experience by being able to challenge myself everyday and having the opportunity to try different things, which all have changed me for the better both personally and professionally."
