Public Health

You’ll see firsthand how community-based programs and ancillary treatment sources help your patients during this customizable rotation.

As you become familiar with our community’s resources, you’ll gain a better understanding of the administrative and leadership skills needed to maintain clinical oversight and quality care. At the same time, you’ll have opportunities to collaborate with health care providers to initiate system change.

Beyond acute and post-stabilization treatment, this rotation helps you appreciate the far-reaching consequences of addiction at the community level.

You can choose your training site — or sites — from numerous locations, including:

  • prisons
  • methadone clinics
  • needle exchange programs
  • women’s health service organizations
  • Native American reservations


This is primarily an observational rotation, but you’ll have opportunities to consult with patients.
