305.607.81 PUBLIC HEALTH PRACTICE

Cancelled

Description:

Students conduct practicum work, including assignments, fieldwork and reflection, under the supervision of faculty from Johns Hopkins and the Baltimore City Health Department. Students select competency-based assignments and fieldwork activities to build expertise and experience relevant to their area of specialization. Throughout, students utilize the core functions, essential services, and competencies for public health professionals as a framework to assess and evaluate the implications of practice activities on Baltimore City population health. Practicum activities are centered on Baltimore City; however, the intent is for lessons learned to be relevant to other public health systems, as well as each student’s competency development within their area of specialization

Learning Objective(s):

At the conclusion of the course, students will be able to: 1) describe, using the core public health functions as a framework, how public health practitioners can be prepared to address public health challenges; 2) apply management, team building, budgeting, and leadership strategies to effectively run a public health organization; 3) understand the importance of communication and use appropriate strategies to effectively communicate public health information to various audiences; 4) assess the efficacy of specific public health programs and policies; and 5) advance their personal career growth and development.
