Summer 2017 Preceptorship Students and PH-CHE Faculty

Public Health and Community Health Education Major Preceptorship

During their last undergraduate semester, majors in Public Health and Community Health Education participate in a full-time 15-credit service-learning course named the Undergraduate Public Health and Community Health Education Preceptorship.  Faculty created this experience as a capstone for undergraduate coursework, and participants find this to be a cornerstone for their career.

The objectives of the preceptorship are threefold: 

  1. To apply realistically the knowledge and skills attained in the campus setting to specific practical community health education issues in the agency setting 
  2. Resulting in practical service to the agency 
  3. Better student preparation for future employment and/or advanced education

About a year before the conclusion of course work, program participants work with a faculty member to align with a preceptorship site reflecting their interests in specific settings, health concerns, populations, and sometimes locations.  The faculty adviser arranges a visit between the student preceptee and the agency preceptor who will mentor the student during the preceptorship.  Alignments are finalized when the faculty member, student preceptee, and agency preceptor agree on the features of a student-generated proposal.

Public Health and Community Health Education majors are encouraged to learn more about the Preceptorship experience by attending a Public Health and Community Health Education Preceptorship Sharing Health Expo event sponsored by the Department of Health Education Health Promotion.  The Preceptorship Sharing Health Expo is held at the beginning of the spring and fall semester, and at the end of the spring and fall semester prior to finals week.  The Preceptorship Sharing Health Expo will provide students the opportunity to speak with students who have just completed their preceptorship experience, as well as various preceptorship site sponsors.  

Students can go to the Public Health and Community Health Education Preceptorship Sharing web site to view the preceptorship sharing presentations of previous PH CHE students. 

Students can also go to the link on the Final Reports tab to see the written preceptorship final reports submitted by previous Public Health and Community Health Education students.  These reports will give students more detailed information regarding individual preceptorship sites and the duties performed by the PH-CHE students during their preceptorship experience.
