Highlight of Weekly Deliverables:
We are on a mission to help public health professionals build their dream careers.
PH SPOT was founded in 2017 by Sujani Siva. saw a gap in the online space for a career development resource dedicated specifically for public health professionals. Sujani identified this gap after she spent many hours from 2013 – 2016, guiding public health students and new grads one-on-one with their careers. As this was not a scalable solution, Sujani decided to create PH SPOT to reach, inspire and support a larger number of public health professionals.
PH SPOT initially started as a job board and evolved into what it is today featuring community-generated career stories on the blog, a podcast to complement the blog, and resources and tools for studying, working and upskilling in public health.
As a trusted career development resource, we are recommended and relied upon by students, new graduates, academic institutions, and public health organizations
Since graduating from her public health degree in 2013, Sujani spent countless hours between until the launch of PH SPOT guiding public health students and new grads one-on-one with their careers. Recognizing that this was not a scalable solution, nor a personally sustainable one she launched PH SPOT to reach, inspire and support a larger number of public health professionals while ensuring that a more diverse set of experiences and advice was being shared.
With the pandemic as knowledge exchange, mentorship and networking moved to virtual spaces the value of an online hub for public health career development has skyrocketed and PH SPOT continues to be a trusted resource, recommended and relied upon by students, new graduates, academic institutions, and public health organizations.

This program is not for you if:
This is a 6-week intensive program, mixed with self-study components and live workshops. You will have access to the live session recordings during the cohort period you are enrolled in. However, you will have access to all self-study materials for 6 months.
We highly encourage every participant of the cohort to attend the live sessions as they are incredibly valuable for your learning and growth. However we also understand that life happens and unexpected events take us off-course. Recordings of the live session will be made available.
It’s definitely worth asking. Our other course (Infographics 101) has been supported by organizations and academic institutions through career development funds.
Due to the way this program is structured (i.e. live sessions), the refunds cause a lot of operational/management challenges for the PH SPOT team. Therefore all sales are final and no refunds will be issued.
Please send us a note to email@example.com
We hope to figure this out in the future. Stay tuned for updates.
We will also add you to our Public Health community so that you can receive more awesome stuff from us. If you’re not enjoying them, you can unsubscribe instantly.
