Every year, we send more than 425 graduates into the world with the tools to solve complex public health problems.

Our Gillings School students have these skills not only because they engage with our School’s world class faculty and superb resources, but also because they gain direct experience working with community partners during their practicum, or field experience. These partners give our students an unparalleled education through real-world projects within organizations and across communities; they also give students the support they need to succeed by providing excellent mentoring. Because of their efforts, our students are able to take what they learn in the classroom and apply it in practice, improving the health of communities in North Carolina and around the world. Practicum Day is an annual event that showcases the breadth, depth, and impact of MPH practica across Gillings.
