This concentration provides the opportunity to develop breadth in public health by taking coursework in two, three, or four of the core public health concentrations. Such breadth is often required of professionals who assume positions of leadership in public health. It is available to students in joint and concurrent degree programs, medical and other health scientists, and working professionals. Public Health Practice is the only M.P.H. concentration available online. The campus curriculum for this concentration follows the same model as the other concentrations. Students pursuing public health practice begin their programs with the 5 core courses required of all MPH students. Instead of a specified set of concentration core courses, however, these students may choose 2 or more courses from advanced course options in two to four of the other concentrations. Students complete their degree with a 5 to 8 credit internship. All students in this concentration must hold a prior health professional degree or be enrolled in a joint or concurrent graduate program. To be eligible for the accelerated option, applicants must hold a terminal degree in a health or health-related field. The online Public Health Practice curriculum begins with the 5 core courses and then offers two or more courses in epidemiology, environmental health, public health management and policy and social and behavioral sciences. Students complete their degree with a 5 to 8 credit internship. Online students are not available to pursue the MPH on campus in Gainesville, either due to employment or geographic distance.
