"As a Master of Public Health student at the U of S, I gained invaluable insight and expertise into the public health arena in Canada and globally. The core courses equipped me with an array of tools a public health professional would need, while the variety of electives gave me freedom to tailor my career based on my interests. As an international student, the practicum experience went a long way in helping me build my network and gain the field experience enabling me to secure employment even before graduating the program."

Kimberly Davy

"The MPH program equipped me with incomparable opportunities to engage in health research and understand the health and social disparities faced by vulnerable communities both in Saskatchewan and internationally. Through community-based projects in the core neighbourhoods of Saskatoon to international assignments in the slums of Dhaka, Bangladesh, I gained unique hands-on training in global health and epidemiology that prepared me to work with communities to promote public health at home and abroad. It was a pleasure to work among and learn from a diverse, intelligent and talented group of faculty and students, the open-minded and inspiring conversations were invaluable. Thank you to the School of Public Health for the enriching education." 

Kimberly graduated in 2014.
