What is public health practice?
Public health practice is the strategic, organized, interdisciplinary application of knowledge, skills,and competencies necessary to perform public health core functions (Public Health Practice Council, 1998).
Public health practice is a critical part of your educational experience at YSPH. In addition to supporting the development of skills important for a successful career, practice-based learning provides you with the opportunity to apply your classroom learning in real-world settings.
