Masters of Public Health placements are available to students who have a required placement through enrolment in the Master of Public Health program. At this time, we do not provide paid practicums for MPH students.
A current affiliation agreement with your school must be in place before we consider a placement at Public Health Services.
How to apply for a placement
Interested MPH candidates must submit a cover letter and curriculum vitae (CV). Both cover letter and CV must be saved as one document in PDF format. Due to the high volume of requests and interest, candidates must identify which project they are most interested in.
All submissions must be received by 4:30 pm on Friday, February 14, 2020. Submissions received after this time will not be considered.
