There's so much you can do in public health. We are here to help all of our students uncover those possibilities and see the bigger picture. We believe that preparing our future health champions to be career-ready is part of our commitment to student success and supplying our graduates with the right tools, experiences, partnerships, and relationships to make an impact. As a result, developing our workforce is vital.

More specifically, MPH students, as part of their degree program, are required to complete a practicum, where they will apply what they have learned in the classroom and engage in practice activities aligned with their career goals and interest areas in the field.

The practicum is designed to further develop our students into public health champions and get them ready for a valued career in public health service. The practicum field experience is tailored to our student's needs and professional interest. The students take a primary role in researching potential sites and identifying potential mentors.

Would you like to serve as a practicum site for our students? Have ideas on how we can increase opportunities for our students to learn? Contact us!
