Public Health Career Design

A professional development workshop

Brought to you by:


The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health have teamed up with Mission Collaborative to help you make the most of your public health career!

We've designed this unique half-day workshop to get you thinking about your broader vision for your career and how you can set yourself up to navigate it effectively.

Whether you're just starting out in public health or you've been in the field for decades, this workshop will help you define your professional goals and plot a roadmap to get there.

Maybe you want to move from consulting into government, or perhaps you have no idea what your next step should be - either way, we'll work with you to translate your experience into a compelling story that will open doors to you.

Along the way, you'll meet other public health professionals from both Harvard Chan and Hopkins Bloomberg and develop practical skills that will distinguish you from others.


By the end of the day:
