APEX Opportunities

Working with community partners during an Applied Practice Experience (APEX) is a highlight of the Master of Public Health program. The rewards go both ways. Students help community partners examine critical public health challenges, and community partners help students learn to navigate and succeed in a professional setting.

We offer many field work opportunities with agencies and organizations in Madison, across the state and around the world. These partnerships are designed to meet the diverse needs and interests of our students.
