Anna V. Kontsevaya, RSC Board Member, Leading Scientist at the Department for Primary Prevention of Chronic Non-commincable Diseases at the National Research Centre for Preventive Medicine. Blog from London. Part one Or the first visit on the program «MSc in Health Economics, Outcomes and Management in Cardiovascular Sciences» to LSE.
In 2011 when I finished and defended my thesis for the degree of doctor of medical sciences, I happily sighed, "Well, I finished my serious educational things, two postgraduate degree, scientific degree, enough! Of course, I will learn all my life: short courses, conferences, literature, but no more global things! "
I was wrong! And it is wonderful! Life is multifaceted and gives more opportunities than we can even imagine in some of its point.
Since 2015 I am a student of the prestigious London school of economics (LSE) on the degree Master of sciences in Health Economics, Outcomes and Management in Cardiovascular Sciences. This program is part-time and distance learning in 2015-2017. My first visit in London was from 7 till 18 December 2015.
I am writing this blog with two main purposes:
1. to inspire and show by example that a good education abroad is possible for Russian physicians
2. to give practical advice and describe my own experiences and/or mistakes on this way.
