MPH Practicum

MPH students are required to complete up to 400 hour internship experience beginning about halfway through the Program.  The variation in hours provides the flexibility to accommodate students who already have a great deal of health education experience while also assuring that those who are relatively inexperienced will have ample opportunity to develop their practice skills before leaving the Program.  Students may request from their advisor the MPH Field Training Manual.  In this Manual students will find the requirements which must be met during the field training experience.  Students will be assisted in identifying an appropriate field training agency.  Once an agency has been identified, a Field Training Supervisor submits a curriculum vita to verify qualifications to manage a student and a willingness to meet with the University Field Training Coordinator.

The following list identifies some of the agencies providing sites for MPH graduate students in the recent past:

  • Aids Project Los Angeles
  • American Cancer Society-San Fernando Valley Unit
  • Blue Shield of California
  • California Diabetes Program
  • CSUN Student Health Center
  • Kaiser Permanente, Downey
  • Kaiser Permanente, Panorama City
  • Los Angeles County Department of Health Services
  • Los Angeles County Public Health
  • Northeast Valley Health Corporation
  • Northridge Hospital Medical Center
  • Santa Barbara Public Health Department
  • Sepulveda V.A. Medical Center
  • St. John's Regional Medical Center
  • Venice Family Clinic-Health Ed Unit
  • Ventura County Public Health

Should a student wish to intern at a particular agency, the MPH Advisor should be informed and the appropriate contacts will be made.
