Practice Experience

The practice experience is an opportunity for students to demonstrate public health competencies within a public health practice organization. All students must demonstrate at least 5 competencies during their practice experience 3 of which will be foundational and 2 (or more) will be selected by the student. Students will demonstrate competency attainment using a portfolio approach in which they work with a public health practice organization to develop at least two products that will be mutually beneficial to the student and organization. Examples of products include written assignments, projects, videos, multi-media presentations, spreadsheets, websites, posters, photos or other digital artifacts of learning.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
