CEOMPH students are required to take six core courses (two core courses on Saturday for three semesters; alternate schedules available):
The courses are delivered through a hybrid of teaching methods: interactive videoconferencing, online asynchronous lectures and face-to-face instruction. Elective courses may be taken at any of the partner universities. Core courses are taught on Saturdays to accommodate working students.
Capstone & Electives
In addition, the student is required to complete a capstone project and electives. The capstone project teams a student with a faculty preceptor and community preceptor to produce a product useful to public health (e.g., paper, evaluative report, grant, etc.) At the end of the program, the student is expected to present his or her capstone project, a summary of courses and how public health competencies were fulfilled, and “portfolio” (a collection of accomplished objectives) to a panel of faculty. The student is required to take a total of 42 semester credits.
