Hi Sophie! What do you think has been most valuable to you about this program?
Sophie Rose
32:15
I think faculty/research group collaboration! I’m working with my thesis advisor on two WHO grants this year and have also worked closely with the Center for Health Security on global preparedness tools in a part time capacity. Both were invaluable opportunities to apply what I’ve learned in our program!
Sophie Rose
32:29
(And that were uniquely accessible to me as a student)
Lou
32:58
yes!
Jason Hou

Hi! I am an international student , and I am wondering if the epi program (both SCM and MHS are eligible to have the three-year Optional Practice training that is designed for STEM major .
Jason Hou
34:48
There is a list of programs eligible for the 3 year OPT from DHS, I am wondering if the epi program of JHU is on that list
Erin Choby (she/her)
34:56
How would you say your MHS program differs from a MPH program?
Fran (she/her) Burman
36:12
Epis programs are approved to for STEM programs.
Sophie Rose
36:37
Hi Jason: I’m an international student. Will preface by saying that everyone’s situations are unique—it depends. But if you spend your degree attending Hopkins full-time in person, you’re eligible for 1 year OPT. The STEM extension depends on how well the job relates to your degree and the STEM requirements.
Fran (she/her) Burman
36:40
MHS is different from the MPH and I will discuss - this is a great questions.
Brigid F
37:54
Hi, thank you so much for the presentation! I was wondering if you could speak more about choosing a research track and how that interacts with choosing the appropriate track classes (the 4 course track you mentioned at the top of the presentation). What does that process and timing look like?
David Bodden (he/him)
38:35
I have to go to get to class (And my internet is cutting out) but thank you for this event and for speaking with us!
Sophie Rose
43:18
People indicate the research track that most interests them coming in, and take a series of “core classes” relating to that topic throughout their degree. However, there is flexibility to take elective classes outside of that track (i.e. I’m an infectious disease epi. student but have taken social epidemiology classes). There’s also some period at the beginning of the degree where you can switch tracks, I believe—but Fran will know more.
Sophie Rose
44:27
There’s a list of the kinds of core courses associated with each track on the Department website: I would recommend looking at that as a place to start figuring out what might interest you the most!
Xinran Qi

Thanks for sharing the information with me!
Erin Choby (she/her)
44:33
Thank you!
Sophie Rose
45:15
Let me know if there’s more I can do to answer your question, Brigid!
Brigid F

Hi Sophie, thank you, that provided a lot of clarity and I will take a look at the courses online!

Sophie Rose

Sophie Rose
