PUBH 6638 - Practicum I: Field Experience in Public Health


(3 cr.)
Students in the practicum are provided with the opportunity to apply and integrate the knowledge and skills acquired throughout their program of study and to further develop key professional competencies. Students engage in a field experience in an approved public health setting, which they align to their academic and professional goals. Supervision by an on-site preceptor is a critical component of the practicum. The on-site supervisor and the course instructor monitor and evaluate students’ performance throughout the entire practicum experience. In this first course of the two-part practicum, students are required to complete a minimum 100 of the total 200 required hours of practicum work. Students also participate in the accompanying online course and begin to develop an eportfolio based on assigned professional development activities.
