Health and Public Safety
Welcome to the Health and Public Safety Co-op Program
Co-op is a mandatory part of the degree requirements for most programs in the Health and Public Safety Division. Co-op is a way for students to gain valuable industry experience and thus an “edge” when pursuing a job upon graduation.
To be eligible to co-op in the Health and Public Safety Division you must:
- Be admitted into a major
- Meet with your Academic Advisor
- Maintain an overall GPA of at least 2.0 (Some employers may require a higher GPA.)
- Attend co-op orientation
- Meet with your co-op coordinator
Already have a job in your field or have previous work experience?
You may be able to use your current position for co-op or receive advanced standing credit for prior work experience in your program field. Please discuss these options with your co-op coordinator.
Call the Health and Public Safety Division at (513) 569-1670 to schedule an appointment with your Academic Advisor or Co-op Coordinator (depending where you are in the process described above).
Cooperative Education Coordinators for the Health and Public Safety Division are:
Janelle Gohn – Medical Lab Technology
