MSc Public Health for DevelopmentContact Sarah Collins
I am a South African trained medical doctor passionate about child health. I have worked in clinical practice in South Africa and in paediatric emergency medicine in London. I applied for LSHTM as I am wanting shift my career trajectory from clinical medicine to public health.
Why I chose LSHTM/my programme
Choosing the MSc Public Health for Development over the general MSc Public Health was the best decision I could have made. It is a smaller class consisting of peers who have prior work experience and are passionate about public health issues in low- and middle-income countries. We learn from our lecturers and tutors, as well as from each other. I already feel as though I am learning with future colleagues and lifelong friends.
If you have questions about the transition from medicine, or about the MSc Public Health for Development compared to others, I would love to chat to you so do get in contact.
