Practicum in approved public health, community health, or health care setting emphasizing evaluation and service delivery planning or a project such as resolution of a management problem or evaluation of a program component.
We are proposing this change from the current letter grade assignment to pass/fail only for two reasons. The primary reason is to have consistency across the MPH programs within the school and to be consistent with the MHA program in the HSPM department. In addition it is difficult to ensure consistent quantified assessments to a practical experience when there is so much diversity in what the students do and who is evaluating them. Please see the syllabus below.
This proposal is returned due to:
1) lack of syllabus
2) when submitting the syllabus please pay particular attention to the grading
is there PASS/FAIL as well as tradional grading. This must be differentialed.
3) for variable credits, also clearly state the different amount of work necessary to get a grade when taking the coure for 1 credit vs 3 credits.
Cross listing to NURS 720 must be removed:
1) from course description
2) from bulletin explicitly
A consistent grading scheme must be part of the syllabus that reflects how much work is required for passing with 3 credits P/F vs 6 credits.
Please send a representative to the next meeting you submit a proposal.
