  • Chicago Field Studies in Public Health (FSPH)

    While interning at health and medicine-based institutions and organizations across the Chicago area, students in the Chicago Field Studies in Public Health (FSPH) seminar-style program will explore the significance of Public Health in American society today and the possibilities for charting a career in the Public Health sector. This course will introduce students to a wide range of critical issues in health and medicine. Case studies, readings, and assignments will focus students' attention on a series of Chicago institutions including their internship sites that force them to consider what we mean when we talk about "public health". Students will examine the decisions that people like foundations, industry, the academy and public officials make in designing and supporting these institutions, and in promoting public health in civic life. - See more at: http://www.ipd.northwestern.edu/global_health/chicago-field-studies.html...
