Most schools will accept you as a direct entry student. Remember they only accept few intakes, and a post DE exam is compulsory.

Hello,
Thanks for creating this wonderful thread @Etinosajay

Please I want to know if it is only UI that offers MPH (not msc Ph) programs for non-medics and is it only the health promotion and education stream available for me as a health education graduate?

Thanks.

masters in pharmacology if you are going into lecturing as you can't practice as a pharmacist with it but public health to me seems a better option. .

Mods please push this thread to front-page so that those in public health can give their experience and input to the thread for others to learn. It would be more helpful than most celebrity topics on front-page

l am an undergraduate of medical physiology and I 'm interested in public health particularly statistical analysis. My question is ... Is my background strong enough for statistical analysis and the use of software? What are the important things I need to do to attain proficiency in it?

Re: Careers In Public Health by Dabiridamilare(m): 4:20pm On Dec 10, 2017
To the best of my knowledge. ...It mostly depends on the courses u took or will be taking (since u are still an undergraduate) Since u are interested in statistical analysis which I think is a branch in public health called Biostatistics, u should offer courses that will introduce u to statistical test and biostatistics....don't know the course code in ur school but I took bio201 and bio 301 ( both are statistics) and I also offered mic 401 (experimental mcb) where we were taught the various statistical test,........just try go thru ur departmental handbook and look out for biostatistics courses
Professionals in the house, pls shed more light on this

@ preciousnobel, in addition to the above, passion is what you need most. Nothing in my undergraduate studies prepared me for statistical analysis. Along the way, one thing led to another and I developed interest in statistical analysis and modeling. With almost no prior knowledge, I have learned how to do some statistical analysis, plot elegant graghs and do some predictive modelling using r, with the help of video tutorials and ebooks. Though I am far from being proficient, I believe that any thing can be learned if there is sufficient willingness to pay the price.

To attain proficiency in r you need the following : 1) passion /determination, this is because along the way you may be discouraged and tempted to quit. 2) a good laptop. 3) r software, this you can get by downloading it. 4) Video tutorials and ebooks, whichever you choose depends on you. For me I use both. 5) practice! practice!! practice!!! Whether you choose to learn by video tutorials, ebooks or both, you must PRACTICE whatever you have learnt again and again. I hope the above helps.
