2. Attend Required MPH Seminars
At the beginning of each new semester, MPH students will be notified of three date/subject options to attend a DEPHS live seminar given on Wednesdays from 10-11am (EST). Each MPH student will be required to attend ONE of these seminars in-person each semester and attendance will be recorded by the Program Manager until 10:05am. If a student cannot make it to the seminar by 10:05am, they will not be counted for the required attendance and can attend the next required seminar option date. If a student cannot attend any of the three options in a given semester, they are to watch one of the required seminar recordings and submit a summary, along with a reason for missing all dates, to the Program Director, Dr. Rachael Nolan (Rachael.Nolan@uc.edu) no later than the last dat of classes (see the semester calendar, dates, and deadlines calendar for that date). Failure to complete the seminar requirement will result in a registration block.
