Celebrating the Master of Public Health inaugural class at the first annual practicum showcase

Maternal-child health, poverty reduction and emergency management – these were among the wide range of topics on display at the Master of Public Health (MPH) practicum showcase in August.

The MPH inaugural class presented their practicum experiences to family, friends, faculty and community members through poster presentations.

The 10- to 12-week practicum is a required component of MPH program, allowing students to apply their knowledge in a public health workplace. It is an opportunity to discover the world of public health outside the classroom walls.

Experiences took place around the world, from local community organizations to international associations. This year, practicum partners included the Canadian Public Health Association, Middlesex-London Health Unit, Niagara Health System, the World Health Organization, South West Regional Cancer Program and the Pan American Health Organization.

The MPH Class of 2014 will officially graduate at an October Convocation Ceremony.
