R25 International Practicum (Funding no longer available)
The overall purpose of the practicum experience is to provide an opportunity for students to utilize and expand their global health knowledge and skills in a field setting.

We are no longer accepting R25 funded field experience applications. This change only applies to the funded field experiences and has no effect on the GISGH curriculum or designation.
