With the guidance of faculty advisors, the public health practice office, and professional public health mentors, you’ll have access to a wide range of skill-building activities, opportunities to advance your experiential training, leadership opportunities, and ways to get involved in the global public health community.

Skill Building

We’ll help you identify the strongest skills and experience you already possess, as well as which skills you hope to grow. We’re here to help you tailor your coursework, perfect a class presentation, work on an interpersonal team, or learn how to network with public health practitioners, we offer an extensive array of skill-building activities including workshops, seminars, and one-on-one meetings.
