As a Master of Public Health (MPH) student, you will be required to complete a Field Placement. The office of the Practice Coordinator at the College of Public Health has agreements with many exciting sites. These sites reflect the current public health job market and include agencies such as the Georgia Department of Public Health and District Health offices, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, the American Red Cross, as well as local hospitals and non-profits. New agreements can be coordinated upon request.
MPH Field Placement Information sessions are held each Fall and Spring Semester. Enrolled MPH students are required to attend at least one. See the College’s website event calendar for upcoming dates.
For more detailed information on the Field Placement Process, please refer to the MPH Field Placement Handbook in the CPH Grade Course located in eLC and contact CPH Field Placement and Practice Coordinator Jacquelyn Hughes.
