In my personal statements for all of my health education/behavior/promotion applications, I pointed out that I was interested in sexual health (esp. developing programs to prevent the transmission of STIs).---This is something I have been set on since early undergrad. However, recently, my desires have been drifting towards designing nutrition education programs, working with Farm to School programs, etc. Now that I've been admitted and assigned an advisor, whose interests are in sexual health, what happens? Can I just contact the school/my advisor and switch my research interests within my health behavior program?
Also, I realized that some schools I've applied to have specific MPH programs in nutrition. How easy is it to change departments after being admitted?
WHY AM I HAVING THESE THOUGHTS?!?!
