This spring term course is one of the options available to students to fulfill the practice requirement for the MPH degree. In this course, interdisciplinary student teams carry out applied public health research or practice projects in the area of climate change, sustainability, and public health. Each team works with a sponsoring organization (e.g., unit within Yale, local health department, state agency, community organization, other non-governmental organization). During the Fall term, students apply for entry into the course. Admitted students join one of the student teams, which implement their projects during the Spring Term course. The course affords the opportunity to apply concepts and competencies learned in in the classroom to this important area of climate change, sustainability, and public health. This course should be of interest to students across Yale School of Public Health and the University, including Yale College juniors and seniors.
More information about this spring term course, including the 2019 projects and the application process, will be posted in October.
