What do you want to do in the future?
“My ultimate goal upon graduation is to provide a higher quality of healthcare to the communities that need it the most. This could mean working for the World Health Organization, health-related NGOs in developing countries, or the FDA. I could also work as a physician or health policy consultant in D.C. Simply stated, I’m not exactly sure what trajectory I want to follow once I graduate Penn, but to achieve my goal of making a tangible impact on my surrounding community by providing quality healthcare, a strong policy background is essential.”
What inspired you to apply to be a Public Policy Research Scholar?
“PPRS fits perfectly with my intended course of study at Penn. As a student pursuing concentrations in finance + healthcare management, the healthcare policy track of this certificate program will supplement my education perfectly. I want to translate the problems and inequalities in healthcare that I witnessed into policy, and PPRS gives me the means to do so. Delivering quality healthcare or having an impact on medical infrastructure is multidimensional. While my business education will provide a strong foundation to be a well-informed professional, an interdisciplinary approach with a healthcare policy background will be critical to my success.”
