Prospective Students : Why Choose UM?

Stefania Prendes-Alvarez

“I decided to pursue an MPH during my 3rd year of medical school at the University of Miami. I wanted to choose a program with a strong curriculum in health education that would also provide me with ample opportunities for hands-on community work. Additionally, the Department of Public Health Sciences has incredible faculty members that are enthusiastic about educating our country’s next generation of public health scientists. I know that I will be a better physician and patient/community advocate thanks to the public health education and training that I received at UM.”
