Practice Fellowship

Please Note: Applications for 2021 – 2022 Fellowships are now open! See below for details.

Director: Trish Elliott, DrPH, MPH

We engage our community partners in the act of educating students, and students in the act of making a difference in community organizations through intensive, year long, supervised practice experiences. If this working with external organizations sounds appealing, the MCH Practice Fellowship may be a great opportunity for you!

Practice Fellows may choose to carve out a period of time and specific project/deliverable at the practice site and designate it as their MPH Practicum in collaboration with the Practice Office and field supervisor.

MCH Practice Fellows will:

  • Receive a professional development stipend of $1500* paid in increments across the fellowship period
  • Commit to 8-10 hours per week over a period of 11-12 months
  • Have monthly professional development workshops with Trish Elliott
  • Demonstrate major contribution to a professional work product related to the fellowship
  • Present their work at our annual MCH Forum at the conclusion of the fellowship period (early December)
  • Submit an abstract and present at a national or regional professional conference (optional)
