Current coursework graduate students

This page contains information for our current Master of Health Evaluation, Master of Health Informatics, and Master of Public Health students.


Students will work closely with the Practicum Coordinator to find a practicum that will provide them with the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills and to connect with future employers. Once the practicum has been secured, students will work with the practicum supervisor to complete a learning contract.

The practicum is a mandatory component of all professional graduate programs and can be taken after all core coursework is complete.
