MPH Practicum/Capstone

MPH Practicum & Capstone Opportunities

The PRCHN offers opportunities for Master of Public Health students to complete a public health field practicum required by their  program.

Students should identify a faculty member or senior staff member at the PRCHN whose research interests, expertise, and projects are in the topic area and you wish to pursue. Practicum and capstone projects work best if it provides students the opportunity to apply the skills and competencies acquired in the MPH program and align with priority public health issues. 

The topic and format of the capstone project is flexible and is developed through discussions between the student, capstone advisor and PRCHN staff.
