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 an LSM student pursuing biology and 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 impact on medical infrastructure is multidimensional. While my degrees in biology and economics will provide a strong foundation to be a well-informed professional, an interdisciplinary education with a healthcare policy background will be critical to my success.”
