PSMHS Public Health Practicum Homepage!

Everything about our MPH & DrPH practicum, at your fingertips.


Welcome to PSMHS' practicum web-site. We are so excited to have this site available and all the opportunity it represents - for our students, as well as for the site preceptors and our partner agencies. The "practicum" is a requirement of our accrediting body, the CEPH. But it isn't just that we must comply. The practicum offers students a unique opportunity to learn/work in a "real world" public health setting. The students go representing PSMHS, but also themselves. Through the good work done during the practicum, many students find their future employment or even life's work of public health. They contribute to the host site's public health goals and through that can be part of improving the health of whole populations. We in the public health program are committed to making this practicum experience a transforming opportunity.

Best wishes & Enjoy
