For Field Supervisors

Thank you for supporting the BUSPH Practicum!
The practicum is designed to be a mutually valuable experience for your organization and our students. We work with you to ensure that practicum students conduct challenging and relevant projects. Our students come from diverse backgrounds and possess a variety of skills.

The Practicum at a Glance
All BUSPH students are required to complete an approved, planned, and supervised practicum. The project must provide a challenging professional experience for a graduate student (responsibilities can include some clerical work, but it should not be a major focus).

Before the start of the practicum, students must complete a minimum of 12 graduate credits. In addition, students must complete a minimum of 112 hours of work at their practicum sites. Practicum positions can be paid or unpaid.
