Graduate Resources


Students in our program can participate in the Bull Professional Engagement Network (BullPEN) throughout their time at the College of Public Health. The BullPEN provides both required and optional career planning and professional development opportunities for students while emphasizing professional reflection, intention, and application to help students develop healthy, professional habits both now and in their future public health careers.

BullPEN provides resources and guidance through several elements, including:

  • Passport to Professionalism (P2P)
  • BullPEN Professional Development cohort program
  • BullPEN Fall & Spring seminar featuring topics such as elevator pitches, personal/professional brand development, developing value statements, PH job searches, online work productivity, cover letters and resumes
  • Monthly Career Cafes that offer an open forum for questions related to career planning and professional development
  • Speed-resume review sessions
  • Featured workshops (e.g.,) public speaking, managing stress and professionalism
The training provided taught me how to amplify my capabilities and build on new competencies that helped me achieve my professional goals.MPH student, BullPEN Cohort
I was part of the BullPen cohort — through growing my professional mindset and using the resume building skills and interview tips provided, I have received a spring internship working at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta! I will be working with them as part of a vaccine development workgroup, an opportunity that is directly related to my future career goals.Shriya Bhatnagar, MPH Student - Epidemiology & Global Communicable Diseases
