This blended course is aimed at preparing students as future epidemiologists, biostatisticians, health statisticians, or public health analysts/advisors to meet new challenges in public health and build academic resilience and successful careers. Academic resilience, or increased likelihood of (academic) success despite environmental adversities can be promoted by focusing on alterable factors such as coping mechanisms, peer and family support, social connectedness, positive role modeling and mentorship, and intellectual stimulation. Through readings, discussions and exercises, students will develop soft skills required to be successful in the workplace (e.g., how to prepare for the job search, develop professional demeanor, personal interactions). Online training will supplement in-person course content to help students build positive nurturing professional relationships and networks, maintain positivity, develop emotional insight, achieve life balance, and become more reflective. Field trips and guest lectures to introduce students to potential employers and different work environments will be identified with student input.
