We offer a range of practical learning experiences that advance our students' public health researcher skills during their time at Dornsife.
Applied Practical Experiences
Students in the MPH program complete a 120-hour practicum at an organization of their choice, in addition to monthly service activities, gaining important real-world experience.

MPH students complete an Integrative Learning Experience (ILE) throughout their second year. A student's ILE can be an internship or a data analysis project (working closely with their faculty mentor) or a capstone course (working with their course instructor).
