Public Health by Distance LearningContact Taissa Pavliuc
I am a trained registered nurse and currently work in the pharmaceutical industry on the medical affairs team. I provide health care providers with in-depth scientific information about our products and help to create and design continuing medical education with the ultimate goal of improving the lives of patients.
Research interests or career goals
I believe this program will help me develop a more holistic view on how pharmaceutical companies can better support health promotion through the development of clinical patient support programs and continuing medical education, with a focus on public health principles and primary prevention of chronic diseases through pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions.
Why I chose LSHTM/my programme
I chose LSHTM for my studies because of the reputation, flexibility, and broad range of electives offered. I also knew I needed to broaden my learning to a more global scope to better support my organization in the future. It was important for me to be able to stay in my current position, as well as space out my studies over a number of years to balance my work, studies, and personal life. The Public Health by distance learning program was the perfect opportunity for me to study while working, and to apply my course learnings into my daily work.
