Alumni sharing their experiences with you.

Mark Donald Reñosa, M.Sc. - Philippines

Studying International Health at the Heidelberg Institute of Global Health (HIGH) is extraordinary and an amazing experience. I saw how our class’s diversity in professions and previous experiences brought so many unique perspectives and depth to our coursework. Together, we explored global health issues related to migration, climate change, human rights, inequality and inequities. The class was authentic together, as we shared open dialogues and learned from the experiences of our different classmates and professors. I discovered the most meaningful challenges often have the deepest roots and are the most difficult things to talk about. Yet these are exactly what we discussed, analyzed and reflected upon. Global health efforts transcend borders. And diverse groups of health professionals like us demonstrate how it is possible to overcome those differences and show promise that these efforts can be successful by connecting with our soul and humanity. Thank you HIGH, I am forever grateful.

Studying abroad was always a dream, that was actualized with coming to Heidelberg. I experienced a new method of studying and was introduced with great people. About Alumni it was excellent. Every time I learn many new things e.g. helping me a lot to write my article during Alumni sessions and I bring all these new experiences and knowledge to my students. My experiences in Heidelberg help them to see the world from a new perspective.

the Master Course at the University of Heidelberg has given me a new paradigm of life. I am thankful to my respected thesis guide Dr. Med. Sigrid Volter. My field work at the Aga Khan University Karachi was interesting although gathered some negative experiences with government personnel at the Karachi Airport. Each and every person of the Heidelberg team was very supportive and cooperative. My special thanks go to Dr. Pitt Reitmayer.
