MPH Practicum Application
Thank you for applying for a PRCHN MPH Practicum opportunity!  Please fill out the following application with your current information, and attach both your resume/CV and a one page cover letter indicating your interest in a practicum opportunity with the PRCHN.
*updated 4/24/2020* 
IMPORTANT MESSAGE:  Thank you everyone for your continued patience and understanding during these difficult times. 
As of 4/24, The 2020 PRCHN Internship Program is being put on hold. For the safety of the students, the pause will likely continue through summer and possibly reopen in the fall. The few remote positions we were able to offer have already been filled before the hold took place. This means summer applicants should seriously consider pursuing other opportunities or apply for our fall internship instead. We understand this is not an ideal situation and can create inconveniences, but we hope to start our program back up once it is deemed safe by Case Western and the PRCHN. Please contact Madeline Castele, [email protected], for any questions or concerns regarding your application. Thank you.
