Serve as a preceptor Heading link

A preceptor is a practicing public health professional who plays a vital role in the education and training of UIC SPH public health students by hosting a student for their Applied Practice (AP) Experience. An AP experience is a course that is required of all Master of Public Health students (IPHS 650).  The purpose of the course is for students to acquire experience and develop practical skills in the application of public health competencies and concepts.

Hiring international students to full-time positions Heading link

Optional Practical Training (OPT) is a benefit from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) allowing international students in F-1 status to gain off-campus work experience in their field of study before or after completion of studies for a maximum of 12 months. F-1 students who received a bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral degree in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math) field may apply for a single 24-month extension of their 12-month OPT
period. The purpose of OPT is to complement the student’s academic work. USCIS processing time is approximately 90 days for all OPT applications after which students receive their Employment Authorization Document (EAD card) which states the dates the student is eligible to work in the United States.
