MSc Tropical Medicine & International HealthContact Catrin Thomas
I studied Medicine at the University of Manchester, graduating in 2018. I also completed an intercalated degree in Global Health at The University of Manchester. I did my foundation training at The Royal Liverpool University Hospital. I then took a year out of training to do Junior Clinical Fellow roles in Acute Medicine and Intensive Care Medicine. I have taken a second year out of training to do my MSc.
Research interests or career goals
I am interested in HIV medicine, tropical medicine and working with vulnerable and stigmatised groups.
Why I chose LSHTM/my programme
I spent my university elective placement in Botswana and Zambia. I aim as a doctor to return to this part of the world. The TMIH is a unique MSc in that it allows you to complete the Diploma in Tropical Medicine & Hygiene – which equips you with essential knowledge and skills to work in LMICs. Additionally, the TMIH allows you to choose from a wide range of modules to suit your particular interests.
