Testimonials

“This course Operations Research in Population Health is a very new experience to me. I have never enrolled myself in anything like this before. The way everything is taught is really helpful and I am able to clear my doubts. The assignments following the lectures help me understand better. Personally, I love the quiz. Most importantly the way they guide us through each and every process of publishing a paper is very supportive. Thank you!”Show More

“It is a totally new field that we don’t get exposed in the academic curriculum. Opens the gate not only knowledge wise but also has its practical implications. Personally, I learned how important it is for the medical research to be authentic because the advent of evidence-based medicine has been commenced. Real hard work has to be put in for best results. As a guide, the course helps all through the way of the research. Various activities apart from the weekly lectures such as the discussion forum and quiz help to apply the gained knowledge. Overall it has become one of my fields of interest for post graduation”Show More
