Applied Practice Experience

All Rollins MPH/MSPH students are required to complete an applied practice experience (APE). An APE provides students the opportunity to integrate and apply the knowledge and skills gained through their coursework at Rollins in a professional public health environment. The intent is for students to have a variety of experiences in different public health environments while in graduate school, such as government, non-government, nonprofit, industry, for-profit, and appropriate university-affiliated settings involving community engagement.

Specifically, the APE is a significant educational experience that requires a minimum of 200 hours in a public health agency, institution, or community under the supervision of a Field Supervisor. The Field Supervisor is a public health professional or qualified staff person at the APE site and who can evaluate student attainment of relevant competencies, learning objectives, required deliverables, and overall work performance.
