Internship Guidelines

The material within provides information about fieldwork in our undergraduate and graduate programs. While the undergraduate fieldwork is referred to as practicum and graduate fieldwork is referred to as internship, in this document, the more inclusive term fieldwork is used. Departmental policies and procedures are addressed, and the various forms needed are appended.

MPH candidates must complete 400 hours of fieldwork, and BS candidates complete 200 hours. Fieldwork requires you to use knowledge and skills from the academic setting in an off-campus public health facility. The expertise students bring to the fieldwork facility should make a meaningful contribution to the facility, and the experience gained from hands-on work contributes to the student’s professional development.
