Field Placement

This course allows the student to work with an organization that contributes to the health of a community. By completing an Action Learning Project for the organization, the student will provide a valuable service and gain competency in multiple areas of public health.

The Field Placement should be taken as one of the last courses in the MPH program, and it requires a significant amount of preparation. Students are expected to enroll in 18279 MPH Field Placement Preparation during the semester before starting project work. A Timeline of Responsibilities 2018-2019 (PDF) lists activities and deadlines several semesters in advance.

This website describes the course and its responsibilities in detail. For further information, please contact the MPH Program at mph@mcw.edu or by phone at (414) 955-4510.
