The Master of Public Health Practicum is a supervised experience performed in a professional setting relevant to the practice of population or public health within Canada, or around the world.

The Practicum gives students the opportunity to apply their coursework in the field, and develop relationships that often pave the way to future employment.

Practica generally take place in Canada but with permission from the Practicum Director, students can undertake their practicum in international locations. Appropriate settings include public health units in Regional Health Authorities in Canada, provincial government branches such as the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Labour (e.g. Worksafe BC), federal agencies such as the Public Health Agency of Canada, the First Nations Health Authority, or public health research settings, such as the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS and the Contraception Access Research Team.

Agencies interested in hosting one of our students for a practicum should contact our office at mph@spph.ubc.ca.
