Sudsehna Mukherjee, Ph.D., M.S.

Dr. Mukherjee graduated in December 2014 and is now the Health Administration Fellow with the Surgeon General Office. While in the doctoral program, her research interests included evaluating health disparities related to adverse pregnancy outcomes, including miscarriage and preterm birth risk, and better understanding and measuring of the environmental and genetic factors that influence health disparities, as well as broader health systems in the area of reproductive epidemiology.

Why Vanderbilt?
"I enjoy the multi-disciplinary approach of Vanderbilt's program. The small class sizes and flexibility are a huge plus.  The classes are structured seminar style with a focus on applied methodology and measurement in epidemiology.  We are immersed in research in the first year with our preceptor teams. This allows us to apply the theories and methods we learn in the classroom into our own research starting day one."
