Alumni & Networking

The UCLA Fielding School of Public Health is at the center of an extensive network of colleagues, alumni, and friends who work in all aspects of healthcare in California, the country, and across the globe. This network forms an important resource for both students and alumni. The classroom uses case studies, field projects, guest lectures, and mentorships to expose students to the diversity of healthcare endeavors - public and private, for profit and not for profit, community-based and entrepreneurial, direct service delivery, cutting-edge technology - that make up Southern California's dynamic healthcare marketplace.

The EMPH Program was a catalyst for me beginning my career in healthcare in Los Angeles. My prior work experience was an active duty officer in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General Corps. If it wasn't for the powerful network this program provides, I would not be working with the Medical Delivery Network at Cedars-Sinai.

Kaylie Alexander, EMPH Class of 2018, recently landed a new job at Elevation Health Partners. Kaylie's new title is Operations and Quality Improvement Consultant, in which she works as a coach on the LA Practice Transformation Network project. In regards to her experience in the EMPH program, Kaylie notes: "The EMPH program was essential for me moving to this role. First, one of my classmates sent me the job listing- I would not have known about it without networking through EMPH. Second, I learned so much in the program that it prepared me for a role as a consultant. I feel in this role you have to have a broad understanding of health care policies and I definitely have that after the EMPH experience."
