Practicum Program
CHD has been sponsoring a formal student practicum program for many years. The program was started in 1990 to address a shortage of rural recruitment in the mental health field. Today, the needs of the organization are always changing, and practicum students fill many roles as our business needs and services expand.

Students are matched with their area of interest as closely as possible while, at the same time, matched with a team's needs. Students in the past have participated in program development, group facilitation, research, market analysis, client services, home visits, public health, and data analysis. Some practicum students have gone to be hired full time at CHD.

CHD has alliances with the following universities:

Eastern Oregon University
Portland State University
Oregon Health Sciences University
Walla Walla University
University of Oregon

You may contact Human Resources at 541-962-8811 or email with any questions.

As the CHD practicum program continues to grow, so do the teams who utilize the students. CHD is always looking for the "win - win" alliance with community and regional educational institutions and programs.
