The Department of Community Health Sciences (CHS) and the Fielding School of Public Health (FSPH) have a long history of partnering with practice sites, including local health departments, state health agencies, federal agencies, local non-profit community based organization, healthcare systems, schools and international agencies, to provide high quality meaningful required field training for our students. With a growing national trend to increase more practice based education and training and experiential opportunities for graduate students, CHS and the FSPH have been successful in the development and implementation of additional training, professional development and academic programs.
The Academic Administrator will be responsible for overseeing and implementing the Department’s required fieldwork for its MPH students. This work will include developing and maintaining relationships with field training sites that includes overseeing the identification, recruitment and selection of community agency partners and public health professional preceptors at these organizations. This will also include responsibility for identifying and creating new partnerships as needed. The AA will work closely with students to oversee individualized field training plans, as well as supervise students’ experiences. The AA will be responsible for ongoing needs assessments and evaluation of the Department’s field training program. The AA will also be responsible for program management of existing programs as well as the development of new initiatives to expand applied training activities and professional development opportunities, including identifying funding opportunities and proposal preparation.
The AA will also be responsible for applied training opportunities for students across the school. The AA will collaborate with faculty within the School as well as across campus to develop and implement initiatives related to interdisciplinary training and applied programs. This AA will be responsible for program management of current projects such as the FSPH’s Population Health Advocacy Training Programs and efforts with other professional health schools. As new programs are created, the AA will be involved and lead efforts in program design, implementation, ongoing management and evaluation. A significant portion of the School’s budget for these activities derives from extramural funds, and this AA is responsible for identifying new opportunities to expand program initiatives and for oversight of all relevant contract and grant-funded programs. The AA also develops curriculum about emerging public health practice and interdisciplinary issues for graduate students and may teach interdisciplinary academic courses.
