I like the atmosphere that surrounds Public Health as well as the Applied Health Sciences faculty. I have always had an enjoyable experience with my peers and professors!
I like the broad scope of study in public health, you get the best of both worlds understanding the effects social and natural sciences have on individuals and the population.
Public Health at the University of Waterloo provides me with unique opportunities to visualize health from a broader lens. It incorporates fundamental disciplines such as epidemiology, climate change, health policy, biostatistics, biology, social and cultural perspectives. One of the biggest reasons I love Public Health is because of the meaningful contributions you can make through research or creating strategies to reduce or control various global concerns.
I like that my program allows me to understand health care from a different perspective, at a population level. I also like that my program offers room through electives to explore other areas of interest.
I like that my program is very flexible and covers various health related topics.
