Some of you who have read my blog for awhile may remember that just before I found out we were going to have Kaleya, I was making plans to pursue a PhD. That didn't work out :-).. But now, I have another opportunity for advanced education that I am pursuing (with WONDERFUL support from my boss!) and so I'm going through the process now of applications, GREs, etc., etc. If I am accepted for the program I'd like to pursue, I'll be working towards an Masters of Public Health degree with a biomedical informatics sponsorship. The best part is that I won't even have to move if I get it - it would be through Vanderbilt.
Wish me luck! I'll know the final decisions in late spring. So, until Monday I'm off to review my new vocabulary (opprobrium, sedulous, aggrandize, capricious, dilatory, craven, torpor, and potentate are just some of my new faves) and get my mind working through mathematical problems!
