This is for Question # 4 professor said this is how she wants it answered
Explain in a measurable way where you learned information to support your mastery of the ASPH MPH competencies
Unfortunately it is worded awkwardly. Thus, below I've given a few tips on how to handle this portion of the assignment.
For this section of the assignment you could: (1) identify each ASPH MPH competency that you feel has been mastered during this first portion of the practicum experience; (2) provide a numerical estimation of your mastery of the competency at the start of the practicum (i.e., baseline value) and where you feel you are now (i.e. midpoint value); and (3) briefly describe how this mastery was accomplished.
For example, the description may look similar to this:
During the practicum experience, one of the primary competencies met was: Epidemiology #8 - Communicate epidemiologic information to lay and professional audiences.
Prior to this practicum, my experience was limited in communication of epidemiologic information to lay/professional audiences. As a result of the practicum thus far, my mastery of the competency has increased from 0 to 30 % (or three-fold, etc.).
These increases can be attributed to my participation in the following activities: (a) educational presentations on prevention of heart disease at a community center and (b) poster presentation of study data at a research symposium.
I anticipate that by the end of the practicum, my mastery of the competency will be increased even further.
Given that this is only one portion of the assignment, you may consider only highlighting 2 to 4 competencies (that you feel were truly mastered at some level). Also, please know that you do not have to write it in the exact same manner as the example above, but I ask that it is presented in an organized manner.
