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.

Alumni  & Student Spotlight

Congratulations to our very own EMPH Year 1 student, Cameron Salehi (Class of 2024) on being a finalist in the 2023 Health Equity Challenge! The UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, Molina Cares, and California Health Care Foundation have recently announced the 14 finalists. The competition is an opportunity for UCLA graduate students to identify a health equity issue across Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and Riverside counties, create a proposal to address it, and work with a community-based organization to implement their project. Up to four finalists’ community-based organizations will be awarded up to $50,000 each to fund the project. Please click here for more information.
