Epidemiology Graduate Student
At UChicago, I have mentors who are experts and leaders in their fields, who also care about my career development. I’m also thankful for the tight-knit nature among the students in our department, which has helped me grow tremendously as I am constantly interacting with students with different areas of expertise. Overall, I think the support and preparation I’m receiving at UChicago to become an independent researcher is incredible and confirms that my graduate school decision was the right one for me.
