Practice Fellowship

    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!

    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)

    *The Fellowships are supported by the federal HRSA/MCHB grant #6-T76MC00017, and as such financial support is available only to U.S. citizens and permanent residents. Foreign nationals may be selected as fellows if they choose to forgo the stipend.
