XXXX University is my first choice for returning to academic study primarily as a result of my profound respect for your state-of-the-art program and the fact that I see myself as the best fit with the MPH curriculum at XXXX. I was granted a full scholarship from my government to complete medical school in Ireland, graduating from the Royal College of Surgeons in 2010. After completing my studies, I returned to Qatar and have been serving in a variety of health care capacities since then, more and more geared towards public health issues and challenges.
I look forward to a long professional lifetime in Qatar serving as a public health and public policy consultant. At some point, I would also very much like to establish my own public health clinic - which I would use as an interdisciplinary base for forming responses to public health challenges looming on the horizon. A hard worker not afraid to ask tough questions, I am an honest person who could not be more dedicated to health promotion. I have a great passion to learn all that I can about public health, with respect to a broad range of public health issues, especially those that have a major impact on Qatar. Most of all, I want to focus on communicable diseases like MERS, the effects of obesity, heavy smoking, the health needs and issues of frequent travelers, etc.
Qatar is already heavily devoted to preparation for the World Cup in 2022 that will present us with numerous, novel challenges in the public health arena since we are expecting by far the largest influx of people in our history – mostly all at once. Already, extra guest workers are pouring into Qatar and we face very serious issues in our struggle to prevent food poisoning and workplace injuries, as well as the issues that effect travelers generally speaking. Qatar has a shortage or qualified physicians with advanced training in Public Health and I would be enormously appreciative of Essex University to allow me to join your especially distinguished online Public Health community so as to give my all to protecting the health of our citizens and the many guest workers and visitors coming to our country.
One of my primary interests lie in the area of communicable diseases that can be passed from animals to humans, such as Corona, for example, a potentially fatal disease passed from camels to humans for which there is no known cure. This makes it necessary for the owners of camels to cooperate with public health officials, requiring quite a bit of finesse. I am good at this, patiently and respectfully explaining to the camel owners why blood tests of their animals are necessary. I understand the culture of these people, and they trust me, especially since I am a medical doctor. Earning th will also help me to develop strategies for dealing with our shortages of medical supplies that has resulted from a commercial blockade by some of Qatar’s neighbors.
