MSc EpidemiologyContact Caroline Kim
I graduated from Northeastern University in 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences. During my undergraduate studies, I undertook a full-time research placement at the Centre for the Development and Evaluation of Complex Interventions for Public Health Improvement (DECIPHer) at Cardiff University in Wales.
Research interests or career goals
I developed research interests in injury and violence prevention, particularly in firearm violence and intimate partner violence. Subsequently, I became interested in how cultural and contextual factors can be used to improve healthcare delivery among diverse communities. After my MSc, I will be matriculating into medical school in the United States. Concordant with this, I hope to use my specialized epidemiological research and training to diminish health disparities and implement changes in healthcare delivery.
Why I chose LSHTM/my course
I was drawn to LSHTM’s diversity - with students, faculty, and researchers hailing from all over the world, there is a unique opportunity at the school to study emerging issues from a multitude of different viewpoints. Thus far, I have had a phenomenal experience with the MSc Epidemiology course thanks to my friendly and passionate classmates who come from all walks of life.
