At GW, public health students gain practical skills and knowledge through a variety of practice experiences. GW’s extensive network of public health settings enables students to partner with the very top Washington, D.C., national or international health organizations and learn to apply academic knowledge and theory in real-world professional practice settings. Depending on the program and department, students participate in a combination of internships, a supervised practicum project, residency, and/or culminating experience. In every program, students gain confidence and real-world experience through their practice experiences.
Below is information and resources regarding the practice experiences specifically for Global Health students.
