MPH Practicum

The practicum experience allows BU students to integrate and apply classroom learning in a public health work environment. Practicum students contribute to the solution of public health problems while developing practical skills and personal confidence as public health professionals.

BU students complete their practica at sites that span the globe, but with many world-renowned hospitals and universities—and the nation’s first health department—few cities offer the opportunities to practice public health that Boston does. The SPH Practice Office has developed close-knit relationships with a wide variety of agencies, giving BU students the opportunity and flexibility to complete a practicum focused on their particular area of interest.
