Master of Science in Public Health (MSPH) Practicum
International Health students must gain practical experience in the application of the principles and methods learned through a practicum. Over the past 5 years students have worked in over 75 countries with more than 350 organizations. Students have the opportunity to work with faculty at field sites around the world, including across sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and Latin America. The Department also has long-standing collaborations with local research partners in many countries such as Nepal, Peru, Uganda, Bangladesh and several Native American Nations in western US. Faculty and staff also help students find opportunities with other global health organizations.
Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the field of international health, the Department is divided into 4 program areas. Students apply to directly to one of these four programs. To see examples of recent student practicums, click on one of the 4 program areas below.
