Already entrenched in the medical system of Burkina Faso, where he worked as an endocrinologist and a nutritionist, Dr. Donald Yanogo did his homework and applied as a Fulbright scholar to Miami’s public research university, some 8,000 miles away. His country’s record on communicable diseases—thousands of deaths occur annually from malaria and respiratory illnesses alone—served as a catalyst for leaving behind his young family and parents to pursue a master of public health at the Robert Stempel College of Public Health & Social Work.
For Jervon Wright, pursuing a medical degree has always been a life goal and he recently decided that he would specialize in radiology. Wright determined that he needed to pair his Doctorate in Medicine (MD) with a Master of Public Health (MPH) so that he would be prepared for the future of imaging, screenings and community health.
