Become a Preceptor
Our alumni are a valuable resource in connecting current students to meaningful opportunities to grow as public health professionals. We encourage alumni to register as employers and post internship/CBMP/Practicum, fellowship, or job openings relevant to those at any level or sector within the field of public health. Our undergraduate, MPH, DrPH, and alumni are all connected to this service and are continually looking for opportunities.
Job postings, fellowships, and experiential learning can be posted on the SPH Career Content Management System (Powered by Symplicity).

Steinbright Career Development Centers manages Handshake, a University-wide portal that allows students and alumni to view internships and jobs posted by employers.
We encourage students and alumni to create a Handshake profile with rich, career-related details. This will customize the information Handshake pushes to your home page: jobs, workshops and events, and other resources, all based on your interests. Contact Helene Stockman-Baer if you have questions about how to access Handshake.
Additionally, alumni can contact Drexel Alumni Career Services for career counseling, plus access to assessments and career guides.
The Symplicity database – the project/job database for the Dornsife School of Public Health – is available to alumni who may be employers or job seekers. Employers can post jobs on this database (including APEs, ILEs, and fellowships relevant to public health), and alumni can sign up to review job postings.
