Collaborative Projects: Must involve a faculty member and student in collaborative project to enhance public health services to medically underserved communities. Collaborative projects should be developed with tribal, local, state, and regional public health agencies and boards of health to help enhance the quality of public health services being provided by public health personnel, especially for underserved areas and populations.

Field Placements: Must establish or strengthen field placements for students in public or nonprofit private health agencies or organizations, particularly those serving underserved areas and populations. Field placements provide public health students with experience and exposure to public health agencies and organizations such as city, county, and state health departments and nonprofit private health agencies or organizations with a special focus on underserved areas and populations.
