Are international students accepted in the mental health doctoral program and do they get funding and stipend?
Dr. V
25:19
okay thanks Patty. First question, I already have a PhD in Epidemiology from University of Hawai'i Manoa and so, do I need to retake the biostats and epi as I believe I don't have to right? And the next one, as for the supporting documents will I be able to upload them or should they be posted to you?
Yoorim Bona Hyun
26:11
Do you have a certificate program related to mental health?
Dr. V
26:13
okay

28:33
thanks
Yoorim Bona Hyun
29:15
Is the certificate you said is a program that you can pursue in the process of PhD program?
Yoorim Bona Hyun
29:54
(By applying separately from the mental health phd program)
Patty Scott
30:43
No, the certificate is too similar to the degree program so you cannot pursue it while in the PhD program
Yoorim Bona Hyun
33:27
Well understood! Thank you!
Rachel Ballesteros
36:05
Can you specify what you mean by research is a plus? Does an applicant need to have original mental health research, article publications, Master's thesis, or conference presentations, etc?
Samire Aliniyaee

can you please explain more about the criteria which is important in the selection process?honestly like to know how much of our academic, career or volunteer is allowed to be shared in application process

Samire Aliniyaee
44:41
Well understood! Thanks a lot!

For the first two years of the program how hands on/off are your advisors?
Yoorim Bona Hyun
46:31
Regarding the recommendation letter, If there are two people who equally knows well about me, will it be better to get it from a person who is related with mental health than who is not? (The other person also works on the mental health but not a faculty from public mental health)
Patty Scott
46:59
Yoorim, it can be from either one

Kennedy, students find apartments. There are no dorms

Do you also review questions that we put in SOPHAS? (Additional questions in SOPHAS) then, will it be better to write it differently from experiences mentioned in my Statement of Purpose?
Yoorim Bona Hyun
49:38
I’m asking because I am worried if the admission committee will only be reading the SoP, not the questions on SOPHAS.

I have noticed professor Holly C. Wilcox is in line with my interest which is suicide prevention. Where can I get the latest research information about her? (I’ve noticed some faculties don’t update the profiles up to date)
Yoorim Bona Hyun
55:50
(By latest, I meant ‘current’ , thank you!)
Rashelle Musci
57:30
You can certainly reach out to her!
Yoorim Bona Hyun
59:17
Dean’s lecture will be very helpful! Thank you!
Saba Chowdhury
59:36
that's such a great suggestion, thank you! (And thank you Yoorim for asking the question)
Frances wampler
01:01:16
To piggy back on Angie's question, if someone was more interested in the public health practices for prevention fit best for the DrPH program? I do a lot of work right now in the non-profit healthcare sector with ACEs, Mental Health and suicide prevention, and want to make sure my education aligns well.
