Practicums are a structured, supervised, and evaluated professional experience for Master’s and Professional level students to apply their relevant skills, knowledge, and values in a real-world setting. Throughout the project lifecycle, students collaborate closely with a CFHI preceptor, who acts as a mentor, upholding high standards of professional and ethical conduct to ensure a meaningful and continuous learning experience.
Using an Asset-Based Community Development approach, CFHI identifies appropriate projects for applicants based on the needs and interests of our global partners. All practicum projects are locally-led and build on existing strengths and resources, prioritizing sustainability and best practices for ethical engagement.
In addition to developing and sharpening global health capacities, trainees will build skills needed to effectively work across intercultural teams, as they will play a key role in keeping project timelines moving and ensure milestones and deliverables are met.
CFHI is an NGO in Special Consultative Status with the ECOSOC of the United Nations
