List your goals for the Practical Experience. Goals should include what you want to achieve by the end of the Practical Experience (e.g. better collaboration among providers for dental services; greater participation by employees in worksite wellness initiatives, etc.). There should only be one goal for each project.
For each goal, list 1-3 objectives. Objectives should be measurable and may include specific deliverables that you will be working on as part of your Practical Experience. Include a date for the completion of each objective. Objectives should be SMART: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Results-focused, and (realistically) Time-bound. Objectives may include specific deliverables (e.g. products) that students will be working on as part of the practicum project. Students should describe tasks needed to complete the objective(s) and include the approximate completion date. Tasks must support each objective and the objectives must support the goal.
Instructions: List four (4) specific competencies (see next page for a list of competencies) that you expect to gain from your experience. You must choose at least two (2) Foundational Competencies and two (2) Program Competencies. Note: You and your preceptor will be asked to rate how well you were able to meet these competencies so they should be the competencies most relevant to your project(s). Be sure to list specific competencies and not just the general topic area.
4. Evaluate the use of financial resources and management techniques by public health programs to achieve goals and sustainability.
