Most 2 year MPH students complete their practicum during the summer months between the first and second year of study. Alternatives include a placement during the third or fourth semester of study and, in rare circumstances, an intensive placement of shorter duration. Global Health students must complete a 6-month practicum experience outside of the U.S.
Students can select from domestic and international sites previously established by OFP (open School-wide); or by their Department; or select an individual site for approval by their Academic or Departmental advisor. Current students access OFP sites and other school-wide practicum listings via the OFP CourseWorks (PUBHP 6085). For departmental sites contact your academic coordinator or academic advisor.
