HLTH 350 - Public Health Practicum


This course is designed to provide students with a structured opportunity to observe public health professionals in a work setting related to the student’s concentration for a minimum of 40 clock hours. Students typically shadow or assist a clinical health professional or other public health professional. Those in clinical settings are unlikely to have opportunities for hands-on experiences. Students in administrative settings are more likely to have active roles within the organization. Each student develops personalized learning objectives for her or his specific work setting based on the competencies of the Certified Health Education Specialist. Multiple assignments must be approved before beginning the practicum hours. Students are required to complete a number of written assignments reflecting on his or her observations and experiences in the workplace. The one credit course is repeatable for a cumulative total of 3 credits.

Prerequisites: Grade of C or better in HLTH 255 - Introduction to Community and Public Health  and HLTH 290 - Principles of Health Education and Health Science , Health Science majors only, and consent of advisor and instructor.
