Training in Practice

Our mission is to provide leadership and coordination of practice experiences for students, faculty and the public health workforce.

  • Bringing the classroom to the community.
  • Bringing the community to the classroom.

Goals

  • Provide guidance to students in identifying appropriate practicum sites.
  • Demonstrate the integration of theory and practice through public health curriculum.
  • Develop linkages with local and state health departments to address education, training and research opportunities.
  • Promote joint ventures with the community to meet public health challenges.
  • Provide technical assistance upon request.
  • Disseminate findings of applied research.
  • Assist the Dean and faculty to establish practice-based initiatives, policies, and procedures.

The Office of Public Health Practice no longer requires students to submit an e-Mag article.  We are considering alternative ways for students to share their practicum experiences. We will inform students of any future reporting requirements.

Practice Council

The Practice Council is the unit of UTHealth School of Public Health that proposes, promotes, monitors and evaluates UTHealth School of Public Health policies and procedures to (1) optimize public health practice teaching, research and service activities of faculty, staff and students; (2) promote effective professional development of public health practitioners; and (3) foster collaborative practice activities with public and private organizations and practitioners in the community.  

Practice Council membership is comprised of School of Public Health faculty representatives (one faculty representative from each School of Public Health department and campus); School of Public Health students; and public health practice representatives from across the state of Texas.  The Council meets monthly for 90 minutes on the 2nd Thursday of each month.  Meetings are open to all faculty, staff, students, and interested public health practitioners.
