In our Public Health courses at Northwestern University, students capitalize on close interaction with faculty leaders to advance their career goals.
MPH Applied Practice Experience
The applied practice experience (APEx) element of the Northwestern MPH program is an internship with a community organization or government agency with the purpose of gaining firsthand public health experience. Partners orient students to their organizations mission and operations and have students assist or lead in projects that meet the needs of their organization and the populations served. Dependent on interests and concentrations, applied practice experience projects can be done domestically with our community partners or internationally through the Institute for Global Health.
MPH Culminating Experience
The culminating experience of our public health degree program is a capstone-style extensive investigation or practice-related project completed during students' final year of study. The culminating experience process provides the structure that allows the student to take responsibility for and to succeed in the development, conduct and completion of the project. While some students complete their investigations with Northwestern, others seek opportunities to partner with a community group or government agency for their project.
