What can I do with a degree in Public or Global health? How do I find my first job? What skills are in demand? What kind of employer could I work for? Should I do a PhD? Can I have children and still build a career?
Asking yourself these questions? You’re not alone! Every year, several hundred students graduate from Public/Global Health programs in Sweden. Yet many of us still feel confused about our next career steps after graduation. This could be because of how vast public health, as a field, is, or because the skills we learn during our studies are rarely contextualized in relation to the public/global health job market.
The 4th annual conference of the Swedish Network for International Health will be held 17-18th of November in Uppsala to help you answer these questions. Following the success of last year’s event in Umeå, this year’s theme is ” Career Pathways in Public Health: Passion to Profession “. The theme is in accordance with one of the core missions of the Swedish Network for International Health: to support students and newly graduates develop their careers and build strong professional networks.
The event will gather experts from different areas within public/global health, raging from international organisations to private sector and academia, who will share their experience. They will take you through their own career and will shed some light on the sectors they have worked in. Their tips can be a starting point for you to plan your professional trajectory and achieve a fulfilling professional life in public health. There will always be time for questions – so don’t hesitate to start writing yours down!
Besides being an opportunity to hear successful professionals, SNIH’s annual conference is a networking platform for our five constituent universities Gothenburg, Karolinska, Lund, Umeå and Uppsala. With participants from tens of cultures, work experience and backgrounds ranging from nursing to policy making, you will meet someone to bounce ideas off and get inspired.
Lastly, this is a great chance to visit Uppsala, one of the most beautiful, bucket-list worthy and lively cities in Sweden, and the old capital of the vikings.
