The ILE is the culminating experience for the full-time MPH degree, including dual degree programs such as the MD/MPH, JD/MPH, and MBA/MPH. Completed throughout the final academic year of the program, students gain public health experience relevant to their major. The ILE can be a specific project or an internship with multiple projects and activities, depending upon one’s major, and can be either research or practice. Students find these opportunities in similar ways as the APE, either through their own independent searches, faculty mentor connections, or via Symplicity.
