Residents in preventive medicine, occupational medicine, aerospace medicine and public
health, or general preventive medicine programs completing their academic year in the School of Public Health may be awarded six fieldwork credits for their Resident Practicum Experience. These students must still complete the Culminating Experience (final paper, oral
presentation, and self-assessment of competencies) as part of the M.P.H. graduation requirements.
Students eligible for the practice experience credit include matriculated students enrolled in the School of Public Health who are residents in preventive medicine, occupational medicine, aerospace medicine and public health, or
general preventive medicine programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. The practice experience credit is available to students after they complete, at a minimum, nine months of their residency
For information about how to apply for the practice experience credit, please see the
Award of Credit for Practice Experience Equivalent to Fieldwork for Preventive/Occupational Medicine Residents policy and the Practice Experience Credit form.
The credits transferred through prior study transfer credits are counted towards the maximum number of credits eligible for
transfer in the M.P.H. degree program. Please
see the Duration of Study and Matriculation policy about the number of maximum
transfer credits (usually 12 credits) allowed for the M.P.H. degree program.
