COVID-19

Changes to CH I and CH II Syllabi by Class

Class of 2022:

  • CH I will require 35 clinical hours, 12 health education initiative hours, and 8 community involvement hours for course credit. 
  • CH II will require 55 clinical hours, 12 education initiative hours, and 8 community hours for course credit. 
  • Each student will be given the opportunity to log up to 20 Universal Hours. In the midst of COVID-19, clinical, health education initiative, and community involvement opportunities have been reduced significantly. In order to accommodate for this, students are allowed to complete OUCHA-approved clinical, education, or community hours, log them as such in the OUCHA student portal, BUT account for them in the OUCHA hour category of the students choosing. 
  • To be eligible to enroll in Community Health I, students must have completed all health education and community involvement hours and at least 30 of the required 35 required clinical hours for their initial enrollment during 4th year. All 35 of the required clinical hours must be completed by the end of January of the fourth year to be eligible for the elective. 
  • To be eligible to enroll in Community Health II, students must have completed all health education and community involvement hours and at least 45 of the required 55 required clinical hours for their initial enrollment during 4th year. All 55 of the required clinical hours must be completed by the end of January of the fourth year to be eligible for the elective. 
  • Universal Hours are NOT an additional requirement but are an additional hour category/type, which offer additional flexibility to students during the ongoing pandemic. 
  • Clinic, health education, and community involvement hours that exceed the previous (non-COVID-19) course requirements (60 clinical, 12 education, 8 community) can be retroactively used for Universal Hours to satisfy the remaining hour requirements. In order to use hours from the past that exceeded one (or more) of the CH I hour requirements as Universal Hours, the service opportunity must have been logged in the OUCHA student portal according to guidelines listed above (i.e. within 60 days of clinical hours being earned, within 6 months of community or education hours being earned). 

Class of 2023:

  • CH I will require 35 clinical hours, 12 health education initiative hours, and 8 community involvement hours for course credit. 
  • CH II will require 55 clinical hours, 12 education initiative hours, and 8 community hours for course credit.
