Being at an only Health Sciences institution is great because the caliber of students is extraordinary. My peers come in with a vision and a passion to truly make an impact in the health care field. The school is quite expensive and could have more opportunities for scholarships and financial support for students. Overall, the programs are good but like any institution could be improved especially given the diverse student body and different learning skills. We have an amazing administration that truly has an open door policy and this has made a difference in voicing our concerns and being heard!

I thoroughly enjoy me graduate program: MPH in Health Education. I wish that more science was integrated into the program. Otherwise, I am very please with the program and Loma Linda University School of Public Health.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: Great opportunity to receive a job offer after graduation due to Loma Linda being the only 1st degree Trauma center within a 150 degree mile radius. Lab rotations are easily obtained because the majority of the rotations are done in Loma Linda medical center. Great social life with social entertainments through Downtown Redlands, multiple theme parks within a 10 miles radius, great mountain trails for mountain biking and hiking nearby, market nights every Wednesday and Thursday, and a weekly school social night. Cons: Rarely snows around here.

Loma Linda University School of Public Health, Global Health program is a great place to learn practical public health principles. This is a definite leg up on the competition, because public health is NOT theoretical. When I speak of pros and cons they are specific to Global Health, because that is the program I am enrolled in. There are some problems with inconsistency in faculty expectations for classes with multiple instructors, but overall it is a great program. They teach you to look at the big picture, understand the theoretical basis for your intervention, and then tailor the theoretical model to reality. It is also the only program that I found where service learning, international travel and work, and internship/research experience are part of the curriculum. They give students the best opportunity to gain valid experience before they allow students to graduate.

The graduate program I am part of is a well rounded educational experience. The only downfall to it is the price since it is a private institution. Besides massive loans, the school and quality of education is fantastic. I thoroughly am enjoying my time learning and sharing at Loma Linda University. The campus is very diverse and has a lot to offer. All of the faculty are super nice and willing to help. From all of the education I have had, Loma Linda is the best!

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

My program provides flexibility and opportunity for students wishing to earn a doctorate degree in public health from a school that is well respected in the medical and research communities. The admissions coordinators, faculty and staff are helpful and knowledgable about not only in class topics and discussions, but also about the overall field of public health. My department chair is resourceful, cheerful and responds to my emails and calls within a timely manner. Although my program is highly respected, it is vigourous and requires much attention for those truly focused on developing research skills. Unlike on campus students, you do not have someone tangible in front of you reminding you to do your work. You must be self-motivated and disciplined.
