At the heart of the MPH program at Case Western Reserve is the multi-semester Culminating Experience, which requires all MPH students to complete a public health field Practicum and a multi-semester Capstone project. This sequence of two courses, totaling 9 credits, involves placing students in health-related settings where they collaborate with agencies or organizations on projects that are of mutual interest.

Due to its numerous partnerships throughout the community, Case Western Reserve University offers unparalleled opportunities for MPH students to complete their culminating experience.
