Applied Practicum Experience

Summer Practicum Experience for MCAH Students

MCAH students strengthen their leadership and practice knowledge and skills by completing a 400-hour summer practicum. Typically, these placements are a 10-week, full-time work experience during the summer between the first and second year of the program. The practicum experience is required for all 2-year, 4+1, and concurrent degree program students.

Government, non-profit, private sector, and  community-based health organizations provide internship and mentoring opportunities to MCAH students for field placements in the culturally rich and diverse communities of the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.

Examples of recent field placement sites include:
