MSc Health Policy, Planning & FinancingContact Yubing Du
I studied Public Administration in Fujian Medical University in China before I came to LSHTM. My undergraduate courses allowed me to acquire a fundamental and overall understanding of public administration through courses in basic principles of human resources, statistics, and information management. Apart from public management training, my university features specialized courses in healthcare, such as the basics of anatomy and clinical medicine. During my time in Fujian Medical University, I served my internship in Fujian Healthcare Commission.
Research interests or career goals
I am interested in the research about the health policy making in low and middle income countries and health economics. Ultimately, I hope to become a competent public policymaker, improving people’s lives with better public health services.
Why I choose LSHTM/My course
I aspire to deepen my understanding of policy and decision making in the health sector, so I chose the MSc Health Policy, Planning & Financing. At LSHTM, you not only can absorb expertise from professors, but you can also learn something practical when you study with your classmates, who may have work experience at hospitals, healthcare sectors and NGO around the world. This programme enables you to study in two of the outstanding institutions in the world (joint with LSE), and you can take advantage of the resources form both schools to achieve your goal. In additional, you should not be nervous as an international student at LSHTM, since you can find the people here are always willing to help you and you will never regret to spend a year here.
