  2. Defray the costs of practicum experiences, as required in such a program
  3. Establish, maintain, or improve academic administrative units (including departments, divisions, or other appropriate units) in preventive medicine and public health or programs that improve clinical teaching in preventive medicine and public health

Entities eligible to apply for this funding include:

  • Accredited schools of public health or school of medicine or osteopathic medicine
  • Accredited public or private nonprofit hospitals
  • State, local, or tribal health departments
  • Consortiums of two or more eligible entities
