Zambia Field Program Summer PracticumApplications extended until March 13th!

After multiple requests the Department of Global Health has decided to extend the application deadline until Monday March 13th at 5:00pm for the GH775 African Field Practicum in Public Health this Summer. 

The program takes place from May 26-July 2 in Zambia. The students will have a unique opportunity to live in the active market town of Choma, the capital of Zambia’s Southern Province. This 5-week, 4-credit course meets the MPH practicum requirement and can also be taken as a course in 3 MPH certificates (Monitoring & Evaluation, Design & Conduct of Public Health Research, & Global Health) or as an elective for other certificates. The course is divided into four parts: the first is split between classroom and field sessions, the second is classroom lectures and designing the study instruments, the third consists of data collection in the field, and the final part of the course is analysis of the data and presentations to the community and the stakeholders.
