Submit a Project Proposal for a Baltimore Action Project - Due Tues, November 7, 2017
Baltimore Action Projects are a part of the Bloomberg American Health Initiative, which will help to reshape the national public health agenda. The Initiative specifically focuses on five areas affecting public health: Addiction and Overdose, Obesity and the Food System, Violence, Risks to Adolescent Health, and Environmental Challenges. A Baltimore Action Project is a project identified by a SOURCE partnering CBO, which directly connects to a Bloomberg American Health Initiative working group. Through the Initiative funding, a Hopkins graduate student will be hired and paid to work approximately 100 hours to complete the Baltimore Action Project in partnership with a CBO during Spring 2018 (late January - early May 2018).
Provide an MPH Practicum Opportunity for a Student at Your CBO
Do you have a scholarly project that can be completed by a Public Health Practicum student?
A practicum is an opportunity for graduate-level public health students at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH) to apply public health competencies in a real-world setting. The practicum, a graduation requirement, aims for student to develop skills/competencies and demonstrate the application of these through a practice experience relevant to the student’s areas of interest.
All Masters in Public Health students are required to complete 100 hours of a project that fulfills the following criteria:
Applies public health skills and competencies relevant to the student’s area of interest.
Is framed and carried out within a public health practice context (includes population-level activities at an established organization or agency);
Is supervised by a qualified preceptor who has experience and knowledge in the subject matter. (e.g. YOU!)
Is a significant experience (minimum 100 hours);
Is an evaluated experience: preceptors evaluate students based on achievement of defined learning objectives and deliverables; students reflect on and evaluate their overall practicum experiences.
If you have an extensive project that fits within this criteria, this would be an excellent opportunity for you to have a significant project accomplished. There is no due date for this, however, we highly recommend that you submit your proposals earlier in the academic year to maximize your potential to recruit a student for the project.
To review the extensive overview, take a look at the SOURCE Preceptor Information for the MPH Practicum. Additionally, SOURCE created a step-by-step guide on how to submit the proposal through our online system. If you have any questions about this opportunity or ideas about a project you’d like to talk through, please reach out to Kristen Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-955-3880.
