Student Profile(s)

Dr David Barr

Why LSTM? the reputation of the institution and the calibre of the people who are on the faculty here and I know from lots of people who I've met through my work in Infectious Diseases that LSTM's got a great reputation for teaching. (Dr David Barr, student 2015.

Dr Oluwasola Banke-Thomas

I ‘walked’ into my first lecture September 2014 naïve as regards what the year had in store. However, through it all, I ‘worked’ hard during my time at LSTM and indeed my post-graduate experience was an unforgettable one!! Now I am “waltzing” out into the real world, armed with core knowledge of a plethora of key theoretical concepts, expanded research capacity, improved fund-raising, programmatic and policy-making skills as well as a wider network of future public health experts (My many colleagues and friends from all over the world!) I would surely recommend LSTM for young public health professionals, particularly those interested in maternal and newborn health like me. My own experience made a world of difference!!
