Since 2004, the MPH Program has recognized Outstanding Preceptors during the National Public Health Week. Outstanding Preceptor recognition is awarded to individuals who have precepted at least 3 MPH students and demonstrated exceptional commitment to engaging students in a challenging and beneficial experience, personal role modeling of professionalism, guidance of growth and development by the student intern, overall quality of the internship provided, and student evaluative input.
To date, more than one-third of the Outstanding Preceptors are alumni, a testament to alumni making a difference!
