At GW, public health students gain practical skills and knowledge through a variety of experiential learning and practice-based activities. Our practice partners support students in their practicum placements, capstone projects, internships and health administration residencies.
GW’s robust and extensive network of private, non-profit and public organizations/agencies enables students to engage in local, state, national and international practice. Our network of public health settings enables students to partner with the very top Washington, DC, 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.
