Public Health Practice Experience
Placement in the public health practice experience is established by the student’s faculty adviser by an affiliation agreement with a health-care agency or organization invested in health-related programs. Students are matched with public health sites based on academic and prior work experience, individual interest, and professional goals. Students must complete 240 practice hours. The emphasis of the MPH program is program implementation and evaluation that is focused on the public health needs of underserved and vulnerable communities.
