Meet Sunil Saith, MD, MPH

USC MPH Online Graduate, Class of 2016 Concentration: Biostatistics and Epidemiology

"My time as a resident in our nation's capital during the passage of the Affordable Care Act, inspired me to take a broader leadership role beyond that of a clinician. It was becoming clear that an interdisciplinary approach had been successful in treating important economically-burdensome conditions such as acute decompensated heart failure. The USC MPH online program allowed me the opportunity to enhance my understanding of how biostatistics can help modulate clinical decision-making and identify its limitations. Since completing my degree during my residency, I was able to publish a case report as a lead author, present several posters at my research fair and am currently working on co-authoring a book chapter on the epidemiology of heart failure as a fellow at New York University. The flexibility and support of this program has provided me with the resources that would not otherwise be available to me in a traditional brick and mortar format."

Meet Howard Luong, MPH

USC MPH Online Graduate, Class of 2017 Concentration: Global Health Leadership

Being in the Air Force, I travel a lot and I am located in different time zones. This instructors in this program were very understanding and accommodating to my schedule. Through this program, I am able to apply what I learned to help better my interaction with people of different cultures to accomplish defense and national goals. This program also gave me the skills and resources to construct an effective diet and fitness plan for my squadron in which everyone is excelling in their physical training. I have acquired many skills that I will be able to utilize not only in the military but also on the civilian side.

Meet Michael Pham, MPH, NREMT-Paramedic

USC MPH Online Alumnus, Class of 2016 Concentration: Health Education and Promotion

I pursued my MPH online with USC in order to supplement my full-time work as a health educator and Director for my own organization and company. The freedom and ability to attend webinars, while communicating with my colleagues online in discussion and group projects, were great opportunities that I truly appreciated. I feel that I was able to succeed and learn as much as a full-time student on campus. The program allowed me to see the effectiveness of a distance program for working professionals, as well as fostering the same development and professional growth as any other student. Moreover, the USC faculty, despite being virtual, were as committed and invested into my learning and empowerment as much as any other professor on campus. I truly have valued every opportunity that came my way as a MPH online student. While far from Los Angeles county, I was still able to meet with professors and attend events through USC!

Meet Jenevieve S. Kincaid, MD, MPH, RN

USC MPH Online Graduate, Class of 2016 Concentration: Global Health
Earning my MPH Online with USC was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not only has it helped me improve the quality of care I give my patients, it afforded me the opportunity to travel to Vietnam, and the ability to take on a leadership roles as Co-Chair of APHA's Vietnam Caucus, as well Chair of the Disaster and Humanitarian Committee for the Wilderness Medical Society. I also feel much more prepared when assessing the validity and efficacy of journal articles, both in practice and as a reviewer. Finally, I met some incredible people who are doing amazing work all over this world. I absolutely support and endorse USC Online MPH program. Go Trojans!

Meet Karren Wong, MPH

USC MPH Online Graduate, Class of 2015
Concentration: Biostatistics and Epidemiology
The USC MPH Online Program provided me with the flexibility and resources that I needed to achieve my goals. I was able to conduct Alzheimer's disease research full-time while completing my degree in two years. Though the lectures were streamed online, the professors were readily available by e-mail and on campus during their office hours. As an independent learner, I enjoyed the freedom that the USC MPH Online Program provided as well as the support from the professors and administrators. Obtaining my MPH, in the Biostatistics and Epidemiology Track, allowed me to conduct better research and it opened new doors for me. The statistical background and analytical skills that I have gained will be crucial to my success as a scientist and as a physician. This Fall 2017 I will be attending Michigan State University College of Human Medicine to complete my medical degree. I have also been accepted into their Leadership in Medicine for the Underserved Program, which will allow me to gain my clinical and research experiences in Flint, Michigan. After the recent water crisis in Flint, there is still much to do and I hope to play a key role in making a difference for this community! The USC MPH Online Program has prepared me to take on the public health challenges that I will encounter throughout my career as a physician for the underserved.
