Introduction to Native Hawaiian and Indigenous Health
Transcript of Introduction to Native Hawaiian and Indigenous Health
Core Foundation in Public Health
Special Practicum PH793
Students take core MPH courses their first semester, learning the foundation of public health practice and theory, biostastics and epidemiology.
In the summer between the first and second year, students complete their practicum. This 240 hour experiential service learning opportunity provides students with an application of public health in the Indigenous world.
Some students will do their practicum in their home community, perhaps the community that provided their letter of support required for admission. Others might have a practicum abroad.
Once a student has completed their practicum, they may choose to do a Special Practicum.
A Special Practicum is served in an Indigenous community different from where the student completed their Summer Practicum. This experience allows a student to compare their experiential learning between Indigenous communities
