MSPH Practicums

The public health program is dedicated to eliminating local health care disparities and developing community health intervention and educational programs. One of the most effective ways of accomplishing this is through student-led practicums. MSPH Practicums are conducted by teams of students throughout their time in the program to gain hands-on experience in the field of public health.

If you are a community and/or organization leader and would like to partner with our program for future MSPH practicums, please connect with us by calling 910-814-5387 or emailing
