The Impact of IHTM
Our graduates take what they learn through IHTM and use it to address health challenges in their post-IHTM working environments. They draw on connections they gained with faculty on the course to extend partnerships and to promote collaboration. Below are just a few examples of the work that IHTM alumni are undertaking post IHTM.
Sophie Janet IHTM 2015
“IHTM shaped my vision and gave me not only the credentials but also the confidence to believe that I could be an ‘actor of change’.”
Julius Gilayeneh IHTM 2016
“IHTM has been instrumental in setting me on the pathway of becoming a leader in global health care. It was an experience that changed my perspective and approach to public health problem solving, especially within the context of resource poor countries.”
Ainura Moldokmatova IHTM 2018 and Aibek Mukambetov IHTM 2021
"We had a unique opportunity to learn from the best academics from around the world and build networks with research groups and institutions, which we utilised in our work in Kyrgyzstan.
Following IHTM, all these acquired skills were extremely valuable in our work with national and international partners."
Terrence Epie IHTM 2019
"IHTM opened my eyes to how we can use knowledge to achieve goals, it was a game-changer. I now want to combine my clinical, global health and MBA skills, to address the high burden of trauma in Africa using a global orthopaedic surgery approach."
Sopuruchukwu Obiesie IHTM 2019
"Outside my research work, I have tried to give back to my local community. I have organised in-person workshops for teachers at a local school and an online workshop for mothers on the use of positive discipline approaches for education and parenting. This was made possible through the communication, presentation and organisation skills I honed during IHTM."
