UTC MPH students are required to complete two 30-hour ‘public health exposures (PHEs) as a part of their program of study. Through these experiences, our students observe and participate in public health settings across different sectors of our society. We value the role of our community partners and appreciate their support and commitment to help bridge instructional and experiential learning.

After one year, our students have completed PHEs with a number of local health organizations including the American Heart Association, Lifespring Community Health, Siskin Children’s Institute, Southeast Region Tennessee Department of Health (Sequatchie County), and the YMCA. We look forward to having even more of our students working in the field with our community partners in the future!
