EXECUTIVE MANAGEMENT PRACTICUM
The purpose of the executive management practicum is to provide a structure for students in the DRPH program to gain experience in the application of the core set of competencies in high level practice settings. The association of schools of public health has identified seven competencies that students are expected to master during their doctoral study. Four of these are the focus of the practicum: advocacy, communication, leadership, and management. Practicum sites will be chosen based on the mission of the organization and the opportunity for the student to be able to exercise and refine their skills in the areas of management, leadership, communication and advocacy.
