Finding a public health practicum placement


  • Frank Welsh, Canadian Public Health Association
  • Shannon Leblanc, Northwest Territories Department of Health and Social Services

Most Canadian schools and programs of public and population health require that students fulfill a practicum placement as a graduation requirement. This webinar will provide tips and lessons learned that will help students who need to find a public health practicum placement regardless of the varied practicum placement approaches at different universities. The presenters will overview how to find a placement and how to get the most out of a placement. A recent public health graduate will share her practicum experience and what she’d do differently if given the opportunity. View the webinar recording and consult the presentation slides below.
