The Rollins Practical Experience Program (RPEP) offers MPH and MSPH students valuable opportunities to earn while they learn. The program provides funding for master's level public health graduate students to support their academic interests with applied public health experiences in federal, state, and county government agencies, Emory-affiliated programs, and non-profit organizations throughout Atlanta. This program requires pre-approval of 501 (c) 3 non-profit organizations.
This program will allow RSPH to continue its tradition of helping over 400 Rollins students find meaningful public health work opportunities. These integral experiences may fulfill practicum requirements, lead to thesis opportunities, and are win-win opportunities for all involved: the students, Rollins, partner agencies and the communities they serve.
