The Global Health Practice concentration will prepare students for achieving a professional position in the field of global public health, such as with international, bilateral, multilateral, governmental, and non-governmental agencies. The curriculum focuses on assessment and intervention strategies useful in resolving health problems of primarily countries with low resources.

Global Health Practice students have an opportunity to select courses that focus on areas such as epidemiology, maternal and child health, disaster management, humanitarian assistance, management, social marketing and socio-cultural health.

  • The Global Health Practice concentration has an International Field Experience (IFE) component in addition to the APE college requirement. The IFE serves as a structured educational experience provides students with an opportunity to practice their competencies gained through their studies at COPH. The International Field Experience takes place in an agency, institution, or community in a developing country, and under the supervision of the Preceptor and the guidance of the student’s Faculty Mentor. Students have obtained placement in communities located in Australia, Belize, Peru, Ecuador. Kenya, Panama, and Uganda. The types of community work depend on student’s professional interests.
