180 hours of fieldwork plus weekly seminars; 3 credits
Students carry out 180 hours of supervised fieldwork that is intended to bridge academic preparation and public health practice. Knowledge and skills from the core MPH and specialization courses are applied in a public health agency, community organization or other setting relevant to the student?s academic background, specialization and career expectations. This is accomplished under the supervision and guidance of an experienced preceptor. Field-based hours are implemented with classroom and individual meetings along with online communication. Aside from deliverables required by the preceptor, the student develops a reflection paper, a self-evaluation and a capstone proposal.
Prerequisites: Completion of at least 18 MPH credits that include Health and Nutrition Sciences 7120X, Health and Nutrition Sciences 7150X, and two courses in the student?s area of specialization.
