This course is designed to expose students to critical health program planning, implementation and evaluation tools and strategies in a format that models actual program implementation. It is a required course for BCHS master's students and has been developed in response to requests from students for guidance in developing the skills necessary for the effective execution of public health interventions. This class complements other bchs coursework in that it gives the student the opportunity to apply theories and models learned in other classes. In particular, the socio-ecological theory heavily influences the content of this course. Through discussions, presentations, written assignments, and in-class activities, students will learn resources for, and gain practice in, the stages of program development, including budgets and use of logic models. Students will learn how to present their program proposals in both written and oral formats.
