Translating Evidence to Practice in Public Health Internship
The Translating Evidence to Practice in Public Health (TEP-PH) Internship is an initiative of the UW-Madison School of Nursing and the Wisconsin Public Health Research Network (WPHRN). The purpose of the WPHRN is to link public health practitioners and researchers to answer questions and disseminate discoveries that can be applied to improve practice and population health. The network is a practice-based research network focused on facilitating improved quality and quantity of public health services and systems research (PHSSR) in Wisconsin. The WPHRN is supported by the University of Wisconsin Institute for Clinical and Translational Research-Community Academic Partnership, funded research projects, and donations.
TEP-PH Interns are graduate students in nursing, public health, or related health or public health professions. TEP-PH Interns work to translate and disseminate evidence generated through public health services and systems research projects that are conducted in collaboration with the WPHRN into public health practice in Wisconsin and beyond.
TEP-PH Interns are co-supervised by the WPHRN Co-Chair (Professor Susan Zahner, School of Nursing and Adjunct Professor with the School of Medicine and Public Health) and the investigator for the specific project or projects assigned. TEP-PH Interns participate in WPHRN meetings, assist with network support activities as needed, and work under supervision to translate and disseminate findings from PHSSR projects to local, tribal, and state public health practice.
