MPH from LSHTM vs JHU


User: aschaudary - 20 October 2016 13:36

Hello all,

I am a doctor, currently working in London in Plastic Surgery. I have been admitted to do Masters in Public Health at London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine as well as Johns Hopkins University Baltimore USA. I am confused as to which school to join?
I am interested in global health, infectious diseases and health policy and I was wondering which school to opt to in terms of future career options with global health organisations. Thank you.

Along with Harvard, they're the best institutions in the world for this area. So I don't think you can really go wrong with whatever one you choose - both are likely to introduce you to excellent peer networks and a range of organisations.

I attended LSHTM and it was excellent but I doubt that Johns Hopkins would fail to equal it.

Where would you prefer to live? Which place/course might give you the best chance of pursuing extra-curricular stuff (i.e. things outside your host institution) that is pertinent to your career development?
