Our D.C. Connections

“Washington, D.C., is home to amazing headquarters and NGOs. Having the opportunity to attend seminars and conferences of my interest has been extremely rewarding personally and academically. The school’s location allows for important high-profile professionals to come to our events and allows students to network.” — Amanda Quintana, MPH@GW Graduate

Our Interactive Curriculum

“My favorite part of practicum was getting some real-world experience. I’ve been a student my entire life — with minimal public health practice — so this was a wonderful time for me to get my hands dirty in epidemiology and in-state and local public health endeavors.”— Stephanie Melquist, MPH@GW Graduate

Our Diverse Learning Environment

“I was exposed to the impressive cadre of diverse individuals who work in the CDC’s Washington office. Each of the staff have a portfolio of different centers with whom they communicate to ensure the advancement of public health activities through a robust policy strategy, involving members of Congress, partner organizations, community stakeholder groups and other agencies. Being able to engage with the staff was a highlight of my practicum and overall MPH experience.” — Priyanka Surio, MPH@GW Graduate
