Field Experience

The Field Experience (FE) is an internship with a community organization or government agency with the purpose of gaining first-hand public health experience. Partners orient students to their organizations mission and operations and have students assist or lead in projects that meet the needs of their organization and the population(s) served. Dependent on interests and concentrations, FE Projects can be done domestically with our community partners or internationally through the Center for Global Health
