PhD Application Bootcamp

PhD Application Bootcamp

Category : News/Events

Last year, the Department of Environmental Health hosted a PhD Application Bootcamp for students who were interested in gaining a better understanding of the PhD application process and/or applying to the 2020 application cycle. As this was the first year that this program was offered, we intentionally limited access to current Environmental Health MPH students to ensure our capacity to provide the support that students needed. In sum, we had 7 students who participated in the program. Of these, 6 students matriculated into PhD programs, with 4 of these students entering the RSPH Environmental Health Sciences PhD program in Fall 2021.

Given the success of the program, we wanted to expand this resource to include other students and programs within RSPH, and beyond. Our goal is to continue to provide support for students who are interested in applying for the December 1, 2021, application cycle. I have attached a flyer that contains information about the program, specific topics, and topic dates, as well as a link where students can register for the program. This program is free and will be offered in-person (at Emory) and virtually via Zoom.
