Thank you! I have a second question; due to the circumstances, my university just recently implemented a measure where all classes for the semester are pass/fail (with the option of filling out a form to have the class count as a grade). Would this affect application eligibility? Would I have to apply for all of my classes to be graded?

For the full-time mph program, you require at least two years of full-time, post-baccalaureate, health-related work experience. What kind of experience are you looking for? I have a clinical experience as a respiratory therapist? Is that okay or does it have to be ((public)) health related?

I'm an older non-traditional student and received my masters a decade ago. So, academic recommendation letters are more difficult to come due to time and some academicians that have retired. Would this be taken into consideration?

I’m considering a potential career change into public health with a focus on mental health research. I have a two-part question: 1) how difficult is it for older career-changers to be accepted into and succeed within the program, and 2) what resources exist at Hopkins for those in my situation (i.e., people with a family)?
Megan S Dolezel
54:36
I will be graduating with my bachelors in May 2020, but I’ve been working in medicine for over a decade. Do I still need to have two years of post-baccalaureate experience if I’ve already been in the workforce as a professional licensed person?

I have 10 years of healthcare and public health work experience internationally . I am currently enrolled in an online MPH (not at JH) and planning to apply for DrPH at Johns Hopkins for the next opening. by the time of the deadline I wouldn't have finished my MPH. would that affect my application? I am supposed to finish by May and I think that PHD and DrPH programs start in july , would I have to wait another year to apply ?

I was told if an undergraduate student's background is ambitious enough in their projects/work experience they can apply for the PhD program. Is that a myth or is there some truth to that?
