Alternative Careers in Health Care: Public HealthAlternative Careers in Health Care: Public Health

Explore the field of public health and learn how some international medical graduates (IMGs) are drawn to the diversity of public health opportunities that align with their medical education background and interests. Some IMGs are choosing public health as an alternative career option. Others are pursuing a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree to enhance their skills and differentiate themselves.

In this webinar, you’ll hear from the Dean of the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health at the University of Arizona as she shares her journey into public health and offers advice to IMGs. A current MPH candidate explains the challenges and benefits of pursuing a degree in public health while simultaneously working toward ECFMG Certification. Representatives from the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University provide an overview of public health, outline the Rollins School admission requirements for international students, and answer questions.
