In collaboration with the Global Response Preparedness Team (GRPT) within ERRB, CHE offers our certificate students short term summer placements in CDC offices working on preparedness and emergency planning in emergency prone contexts. Over approximately 8 weeks at a CDC country office site, 4 CHE practicum students contribute to the planning and preparedness mission of the local CDC office and work closely with an assigned mentor over their practicum period.

Recent practicums include developing emergency action plans for Belize districts, drafting content for the Ugandan national all-hazard emergency operations plan, and planning a global health security video contest in Vietnam.
