EPH 2017 Schedule & Location:
June 5 - July 21, 2017 (Monday-Friday)
8:45am - 3:30pm
Cook Campus in New Brunswick, NJ

In addition, all students must complete a 200-hour (5-week) field training internship with a local health department in their area. This is usually done after the classroom portion of the course ends in July, although some students complete the internship on their own before EPH begins. Typical workday times in a local health department run from 9am - 4pm. Internships following the class will be coordinated by our office.

    What will you get out of the EPH program?
    Students share things they learned and how they use it in their internships and their lives.


2017 EPH Agenda

EPH covers a variety of topics, including epidemiology, microbiology, investigation and enforcement techniques, and much more (for more detail, visit our Course Description page). A quiz is administered weekly on Monday mornings and a final exam is given the last day of class. These tests are mandatory.

Attendance Policy: Students must attend a minimum of 90% (no more than 3.5 days absent) for the duration of the course. Students who attend less than 90% of class sessions will receive a failing grade for the course. Attendance is documented through morning and afternoon sign-in sheets each day. Attendance at quizzes and exams is required; make-ups will not be offered.
