PUBH 307 Public Health Practicum

The community health internship course is designed to provide students with real-world experiences to develop new skills and enhance insights into myriad community health issues and solutions. Under supervision of the course instructor and in collaboration with a community proctor/partner students will intern for 8-hours a week at a health focused non-profit organization community clinic or government agency. Through the internship and course work, students explore and analyze the social, cultural, and systematic barriers to health in Los Angeles and the U.S. Students reflect on and discuss the complexities of keeping communities healthy, considering the impact of policy, identity, power, urban planning and culture. Before registering students should check to make sure that they are available during the preset internship hours.
