PHIN Team 2018

The 2018 PHIN Team is up and running! We were elected last December 2017 from the M1 class of 2017 and will serve through the remainder of 2018.

Our main aim is to provide as many opportunities as possible for MPH students to take advantage of the unique opportunities this program provides. Our goals for this year include providing access to professional development, including conferences and events in Paris. Additionally, we will be hosting several events throughout the year that will allow students to network with one another as well as create connections with alumni and other professionals working in public health.

We wish everyone a happy end of the 2017/2018 school year and a warm welcome to the incoming students of 2018!

PHIN Board Update June 2016

May was yet another busy month for PHIN! The Buddy system for new and current students has been put together and all incoming students should now be matched up with their buddies! If you are a new student and do not have a buddy yet, please contact PHIN as soon as possible to be paired.

The new PHIN website is finally up and running! Check it out for everything you need to know about living in Paris, being a public health student at EHESP, and upcoming student events. The website includes course information for students to check schedules and syllabi to be better prepared for courses.

PHIN has been working in collaboration with the ParisWHO team to put together a fabulous French-inspired gala dinner for the first night of the ParisWHO simulation. If you haven’t registered for the conference yet, get on it!

PHIN will start organizing summer events this month for new students to get to know each other. Keep your eyes peeled for event invites from PHIN on Facebook!
