Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Global Health Field Study placements will be conducted in a distance-based and virtual format during the 2021-2022 academic year. To avoid any interruption or delayed pathways toward graduation, we have teamed up with partnering organizations to develop appropriate options for the MPH practice experience that allow students to complete the PHFS remotely to protect the health and safety of our students. The TUC Public Health Program has developed a network of placement sites with partnering organizations that provide our students a variety of placement sites from which to gain valuable field experience. Students are matched and placed in sites that provide a quality learning experience based on their public health interests, skills, experience, and expectations. The Public Health Program remains committed to maintaining our students’ safety while also supporting their continued learning and progression of their public health education and training. Our goal is to have our students return to on-site/face-to face rotations as soon as it is safe to do so. We remain in close contact with our sites and global partners. 

Global Health Track students conduct their field studies at sites in Bolivia, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Nepal and Uganda under the guidance of site preceptors and course coordinators at public health institutions, universities, ministries of health, non-governmental organizations, and United Nations agencies.
