Alumni Testimonials

  Oraynab Abou Abbas ’09
“The courses offered by this program, coupled with my thesis project, equipped me with rigorous training in research design and methods and deepened my understanding of population and reproductive health dimensions. Graduating with an accredited degree from AUB has opened the doors for different job opportunities at both the national and regional levels.”

Khalil Asmar ’06
“I chose the graduate program in epidemiology at AUB for two reasons: academic quality and standard of life. AUB offers high quality courses that provide students with up-to-date handling of epidemiology and all the necessary statistical tools and skills to follow a successful professional or academic path. The great thing about the Department of Epidemiology and Population Health at FHS is that it offers a wide variety of specialized courses and easy access to advanced computing resources and software. Based on my FHS credentials I was offered two scholarships to pursue my graduate studies, one in the U.S and the second in France.”


Amr Awad ’09
“The MS program at FHS widened my scope in terms of understanding the bigger picture. After the program I was better able to understand the political and community contexts for many topics related to population health like maternal mortality, sexually transmitted infections and youth.”


 Zeina Farah ’10
“The MPH curriculum has instilled in me critical thinking, communication skills, and ethical principles.  The Epidemiology and Biostatistics courses have expanded my knowledge and experience in the field of Epidemiology and Biostatistics. My experience at the Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) was enriching and helped me to deal with the critical situations I faced at work as it taught me that even if I do not know the answer to a certain question; I know how to find it. My dream would not have become true without the support of some amazing people at FHS. My advisors were great, supportive, and friendly all through my study period and even after graduation. I am delighted to say that I completed my MPH degree in such a rich and diverse environment like FHS.”


   Lara Ghawi ’04
“Public Health is not a major; it's a lifestyle. It's not a course either; it's a new way of thinking. After sailing on the MPH Boat, today, I can't even say I've reached the shores. MPH is a lifetime journey, a journey that begins every single day.”
    Ali Halawi ’08
“Joining this program was one of the most important decisions I have ever made on both the academic and professional levels. The program’s international prominence in the field of population health and its unique courses provided me with the adequate knowledge and skills to develop into an independent academic scholar.”
   Antoine Hanna ’12
“My experience in this program showed me how important it is not only to treat all kinds of diseases, but also how crucial it is to promote adequate health behaviors and emphasize prevention through the efforts of organizations, communities and individuals. The MS-EPID program taught me the importance of research. Well-conducted research is vital to the success of health programs: it arms researchers with the evidence to go into the field and design studies that give policymakers the hard data with which to address the world’s problems.”
   Ashraf Hourani ’13
“After the master’s, I felt that my life split in two parts, before and after the Master. I acquired various skills and knowledge that are essential to have.  The MPH program shaped my personality, my way of thinking, and my way of seeing things.”
   Sonya E M Knox ’09
“Through the program’s wide exposure to different public health issues, I became more knowledgeable about health and development needs and indicators in the Arab region, and how these indicators are designed and measured. The Faculty’s strong focus on community engagement, with many of my professors also actively working in the field, was both enlightening and inspiring.”
   Silva Kouyoumjian ’11
“This program was a life-changing experience for me. I came in with narrow interests which the program greatly broadened. What really struck me were the distinguished faculty members who were so generous with their time when it came to communicating with their students. I am happy that as a graduate of this program I was offered a very good position in my field.”
   Joe Noun ’13
“The MPH program has been a drastic transitional phase in my life, not just because of the information we gained, but because of the new way of thinking that we developed which has ultimately affected the way we perceive issues and the way we deal with them. This is all besides the fact that the degree is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health which has paved the way for my new career.” 
   Rami Ofeich ’13
“I was particularly marked by the supportive and intimate learning environment cultivated by the Faculty of Health Sciences which has provided equal success opportunities to everyone. The staff and faculty were very welcoming and displayed, through their open-door policy, genuine interest in the academic and personal wellbeing of all students. The MPH program offered me a broader and more comprehensive understanding of health and drew my attention to important issues that the clinical approaches of medicine and pharmacy tend to overlook. The MPH constituted a challenging yet enriching, rewarding, and fun experience in a stimulating academic environment. If you are interested in discovering how professionals work toward eradicating disease, I advise you to seriously consider joining this program, for the exposure you will get is invaluable and will profoundly mark you wherever you go and regardless of the path that you chose to follow in your professional careers!”
  Ghada Saad ’06
“The program is research oriented and has provided me with a unique way of looking at, interpreting and analyzing information and data. The topics and courses taken in this program were instrumental numerous health aspects being faced in all the regions of the world.”
  Zeinab Slim ’08
My experience during my MS-EPID was a comprehensive and holistic one involving growth at both the professional and personal levels. Throughout, I was extensively involved in various stages of research design and implementation.  I gained valuable experience implementing national surveys, analyzing data using basic and advanced biostatistics skills as well as publishing and disseminating research results. I also had the opportunity to meet students of different cultural and educational backgrounds which allowed for stimulating exchanges of ideas.
  Rami Yassoub ’13
“The program instilled in me a systematic and multi-sectorial way of thinking about healthcare matters and beyond, inculcating the fact that problems and difficulties are neither created by one factor nor solved by one solution or entity. It taught me how to utilize performance development tools to prioritize the cauldron of organizational problems I may face as a healthcare manager and more importantly the means of developing and projecting practical and achievable objectives for improvement. I acquired skills and tools that allow me to analyze persistent ineffective health policies and formulate evidence-based solutions to truly, contribute to the development of health policies that bring nation-wide and all-encompassing population health benefits. Even more, I was given the opportunity to implement these tools in real situations, along with interpreting their outcomes.”
