Review for Prevention Partners, Chapel Hill, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I help Masters of Public Health students identify practicum (internship) placements. I never hesitate to recommend NCPP as a practicum site. NCPP's consistency in providing quality mentoring and substantive learning experiences is unparalleled. Every student who has completed a practicum through NCPP has raved about her experience. NCPP’s work is innovative, engaged, and influential. I am grateful that our students have the opportunity to be exposed to, and participate in, their work.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the growth in skill and professionalism among students who intern at NCPP.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

encourage NCPP to identify funding sources to support student interns. Students have countless factors to consider when selecting a practicum. If the only goal was to have a stellar learning experience, NCPP would be the ideal practicum site. However, many students cannot afford to do an unfunded practicum; therefore, they are unable to consider NCPP. Attaching some funding to internship opportunities would likely expand, and help increase the diversity of, the applicant pool.
