Benedictine University Graduate Reviews

9 reviews
The student succeeded measurements and patterns of epidemiologic reports, determining factors that affect inferences from the data collected. The knowledge and practice gained from the course enabled her to better grasp decision-making and data evaluation with the essential principles of epidemiology applied. The student anticipated making use of the course in her future career through collaboration in the organization of public health programs. She views herself to be an integral part of community health when investigating the effectiveness and limitations of public health programs. Challenges the student had endeavored in the course include calculations and the use of computer technology when analyzing epidemiologic data. For instance, biostatistics entail proficiency in MS Excel when it comes to computing parameters like relative risk, person-years, and other measures of association.

The overall coursework were kept interesting and relevant to recent events in epidemiology. There was lack of assistance from the career center regarding employment and internship placements. Although professors are attentive and helpful during and after the program, the student needed help with networking among her local public health agencies. The student center has limited resources in career services that includes out-of-state referrals and affiliations within the institution.
The subject matter was diverse which allowed you to explore various avenues of public health but looking back on it I think this made it harder for me to realize what area of public health was a good path for me. I recommend taking the opportunity to talk with your professors and advisors as they are often working on very inspiring projects and can offer you some advice. If I were to improve one thing about this program, it would be to incorporate more service learning opportunities for students so they can network and get experience prior to graduating.
