About the Practicum

Students enrolled in these one-credit hour courses engage in policy-based collaboration related to rural health issues. The students select a project in conjunction with a sponsoring agency. The students selected for these projects work 40 hours at an agency based outside of Tucson. The past year’s projects included work with the Arizona Association of Community Health Centers, Arizona Department of Health Services, Indian Health Service, the Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, Inc., and the Office of the Governor of Arizona.
