Practicum Placement

All Master of Public Health students complete a 400-hour practicum placement (EPID 887) where they gain exposure to public health in practice. The purpose of the practicum placement is for students to apply the knowledge, skills and competencies they gain from course work in a supervised public health setting. The placement is usually completed in the spring and summer terms of year one, between April and August.

Students are required to pay tuition during their practicum placement.
