hi SUKI (SA right) what is NHS, do you require help on how to conduct a lit review or someone to do it for you? i know lit review is not a good thing to go through but there are tricks as to how you can structure your content. i am not sure if this what you need
staying focused and knowing what area you want to major in is key at the very onset. what you choose as a concentration speaks to where you will end up. if you take health economics as your concentration you will likely have to work mostly in the developed world as opposed to someone who will have taken health management, promotion, health systems development etc. these may end up in the UN agencies, NGOs etc. if you major in epidemiology, you may end up in a research institution or academia. however this is not always the case. these are just odds. sometime the dream does not always match the reality. but if you are a clinician, i am sure you have a chance to get employed anywhere.
but why Uni of manchester? are you in the UK. you could try a couple of more Univ. MPH is a great course. dont think twice. i am considering doing a Dr.PH soon. i will go all the way
you are right. MPH is a great course with status. however, it is very practical such that taking it at a distance may not be beneficial to you since you are likely to be a half-baked PH professional. i will explain why. I am not sure what you are dong right now ( as in occupation . but if you are working ( i presume you must be working or have worked in the past for you to get it) may be to some extent you may relate the theory you read about, to your current or past work experience. taking it by contact exposes you to a professionally diverse millieu and you learn fomr others. evidently public health in the UK is diferent from PH in australia. it is a very interactive course which needs inputs from a variety of health professionals/social scientists etc. I am not sure how the Manchester program is structured but i have a feeling that if you take it at a distance you may feel lonly and demotivated or probably fail to meet your expectations.
Kampuyalala, i agree wth the previous follow, we would not really tell why and where you require help wth just that assertion. That is if you need help at all. I am completing a masters in public health myself so may be i could share my experiences. Are you from east africa by any chance. Tell us about your academic and professional profile and we wil take it from there.
Kampuyalala, i agree wth the previous follow, we youldnt tell really what you would like to be helped about wth just that assertion. I am completing a masters in public health myself. So be a little specific may be you will get help. Are you from east africa by anychance. Tell us about your academic and professional profile and we wil take it from there.
you are right jayney. may be its time i saw what's on the flip side of the coin. my concern is around the sample size. i think going the quali way will yield inconclusive results especially with regard to generalizability of the findings. it all trickles down to the research problem but my sups think it doesnt matter. may be they are right. afterall they have been there and done that. Moreover they are supervising me so i have to go in accord with their opinion.
i have been developing a research proposal for my thesis for the past 3 months and when i thought it was ready for higher degrees committee i was assighend a co-supervisor who thought a quantitative approach was a bad idea and peoposed i do it using a qualitative methodology since this is her area of expertise. the principal supervisor seems to fall for it ( in what i presume is protecting her fellow) and i am dying here.
how do i convince them that i still have to employ my original approach. i love working with figures and going the qwualitative road will be a torturing experience. would opposing my supervisors a tocket to failing to graduate in time. i fear that they may adopt me in the department.
Thanks guys but the idea of diamonds is outa picture for now. Well she is just a girlfriend and not a wife. What if she we kol it quits and she leaves with a thousand dollar stone. I will have a heart attack.
May be the firs and second thoughts would be rational for the moment. Something practically thrilling. I love the rollercoaster idea. And a fancy box of her fav ordinary stuff. Nt gold treasure. Not that am stngy.
