MPH Practicum Experience

MPH students complete an intensive hands-on experience with local public health non-profits, governmental institutions or health systems.

UNTHSC places students with organizations based on their field passions and career goals.

Students complete 600 hours over the course of 3 semesters, starting the summer semester following year 1 in the program.

Through this experience, students complete a significant project on behalf of the organization. This could entail designing and delivering a new education program, supporting and analyzing a deep data set or managing policy analysis and development.

Through this professional field experience, you will gain  a professional reference, interview discussion materials and new confidence in your career path.
