Academic Year: 2012 - 2013
Public Health Applications for Student Experience (PHASE), offers students the opportunity to gain real world public health practice experience. PHASE internships require students to synthesize, integrate and apply academic theory in public health practice settings. By working on-site, students see first-hand how public health agencies function and engage in public health decision-making on a daily basis.
Student Evaluation: Students are evaluated on their field placement efforts, attendance and participation in PHASE seminars, a concept paper, and a final paper and presentation
Upon successfully completing this course, students will be able to:
Apply academic knowledge and theory in a real world public health practice setting
Write a concept paper outlining the project aims, objectives, timeline, and specific deliverables
