"The curriculum and overall structure employed by MEZCOPH has enabled me to be the creator of my own experience. The College offers many opportunities to apply course principles to improve and strengthen the community in which we live. There are also multiple public health based and inter-professional student clubs that have enabled me to deepen my awareness of public health based challenges and the changing landscape of healthcare delivery. At MEZCOPH, there are ample opportunities to get involved with early and often."
