Bring your energy and passion to the Colorado School of Public Health initiatives locally, nationally and globally. We know you are looking for real world public health experiences to assist you in your transition from academic to professional life. We know you want to collaborate with community-based organizations, work alongside award winning faculty on cutting-edge research, and examine acute, health disparities in remote villages. That is why we make sure you are immersed in public health research and practice from day one. Uncover our local commitment, national reach and global mindset, and heighten your public health appreciation.
Linked with community partners, you can develop and deliver oral health care packages to providers and patients in underserved communities, explore how altitude affects the human body, and promote health behavior change through social marketing. All of these local service-learning projects and more are available to you.
Make a difference locally
Participating in national research studies, such as the National Children’s Study and SEARCH For Diabetes in Youth are two ways ColoradoSPH is reaching the nation with relevant health information that can change policy, alter prevention programs, and provide you with opportunities to transfer research into practice.
Reach the nation
Change your global mindset by learning from faculty studying agricultural injuries in China, mood disorders in Costa Rica, indoor air pollution in Honduras, and maternal and child health in Papua New Guinea. Be called to action by our Center for Global Health or in our global health concentrations and recognize the right that all humans deserve the best health possible.
