Partnerships with community and campus associates are an essential component of our program.
One major benefit of having long-term connections with our campus and community partners is that we have opportunities to hire quality leaders from the community to teach as adjunct faculty. Like the MCHP full-time faculty, MCHP adjunct faculty members represent many disciplines and their specialties include Child Health, Women's Health, International Health, Children with Special Health Care Needs, Family Planning, Evaluation and Analytic Methods.
The program has a long history of working collaboratively with various UIC departments and units. Our relationships with these groups include joint appointments, research activities, community projects, student placement in practica, and teaching.
