The graduate practicum and culminating experience in public health provides opportunities for hands-on experience for graduate students at agencies or organizations engaged in public health practice. Students are matched with placement sites based on academic preparation and students’ career goals. The practicum poster and report describe the culminating experience. Students apply concepts, principles and theories learned in didactic courses on the core competencies and cross-cutting themes of public health to the solution of public health problems defined for the practicum project. The practicum experience facilitates students’ ability to synthesize and integrate academic knowledge and skills in a professional setting for public health practice.
