Each week you will be expected to provide the following
information to your community practice instructor through your journal entries:
What are your upcoming week’s specific learning goals and
What is your upcoming week’s detailed schedule at your
community practice experience placement?
Were there any placement items/issues that occurred this
week that you feel your instructor should be aware of that are private in
nature and are more appropriately shared here than in the discussion board with
Give a brief description of an objective you worked on this
week. Make sure to cite at least one reference showing how your objective
relates to the public health knowledge you’ve studied during this course or the
public health course. You may choose to reference your e-text, journal
articles, or videos you've studied during these courses or you may find an
outside reference on your own to further enhance your public health knowledge
Remember, your journal entries are an important aspect of
clinical learning as they serve to help you reflect upon and get the most out
of your community practice experience. Therefore, your journal entry should
include the who, what, where, and when of your community practice experience.
Remember, this should simulate a dialogue that would normally take place
face-to-face with your community practice experience instructor.
