Summer 2 2009

Dr. M. Testa
5 credits
Seminars. Five 1- to 2-hour sessions each week.

Summer-Only QM Master of Public Health students develop an off-site practicum at their home institution under the supervision of a local mentor and a member of the faculty at HSPH. This practicum may include aspects of epidemiology, biostatistics, decision sciences, or other quantitative aspects of public health. Students should apply the competencies learned in core courses to an actual investigation. Following the second (QM) summer course work, students must submit a written proposal for the practicum along with a letter of support from an investigator from the student's home site, indicating an agreement to act as the local mentor for the project. This proposal is reviewed and an HSPH faculty supervisor is identified. Students ordinarily would write a paper suitable for publication, a grant proposal or a technical report. This exercise will culminate with a presentation in the final summer of the student's program.
Course Note: Students must attend the sessions of this course during the second and third summer and they are encouraged to attend their first summer. Regular contact between students and mentors and among students is expected via e-mail during the year to seek advice, provide activity updates and to discuss approaches to the solution of methodological issues; pass/fail only.

Course evaluations are an important method for feedback on the quality of course offerings. The submission of a course evaluation is a requirement for this course. Your grade for the course will be made available only after you have submitted responses to at least the first three questions of the on-line evaluation for this course.

Dr. E. Cook
5.0 credits
Seminars. Five 1- to 2- hour sessions each week.

Summer-Only CLE Master of Public Health Program students develop an off-site practicum at their home institution under the supervision of a local mentor and member of the faculty at HSPH. This practicum may include aspects of epidemiology, biostatistics, decision sciences, or other quantitative aspects of public health. Students should apply the competencies learned in core courses to an actual investigation. Following the first summer course work, students must submit a written proposal for the practicum along with a letter of support from an investigator from the student's home site, indicating an agreement to act as the local mentor for the project. This proposal is reviewed and an HSPH faculty supervisor is identified. Students ordinarily would write a paper suitable for publication, a grant proposal or a technical report. Noramlly this exercise culminates with a presentation in the final summer of the student's program. However, if the project is not completed at that time, the presentation can be delayed to the following WinterSession. In this situation, the student would still attend the seminar of presentations during the Summer Session but would register for this course in the WinterSession.
Course Note: Students must attend the sessions of this course during the second and third summer and they are encouraged to attend their first summer. Regular contact between students and mentors and among students is expected via e-mail during the year to seek advice, provide activity updates and to discuss approached to the solution of methodological issues; instructor's signature required, contract required, pass/fail grading option only.
