PH 161 Public Health Internship

The public health field internship provides students with an opportunity to apply principles and skills learned in the classroom - the measurement, organization, and improvement of public health care - to real situations in the field. A minimum of 200 hours is to be spent at the placement site during the winter and spring terms. Attendance at public health-related conferences, events, and meetings is highly recommended throughout the year and can be counted toward an additional 40 hours of required public health-related education. Typically, this internship occurs in the final term of the year, but other arrangements are possible with permission of the course director. Students who have completed their internships prepare and present posters at the conclusion of the spring term and complete an exit appraisal of their experience and achievements.
