The program is favorably regarded both locally and internationally as producing high quality graduates. It has become a model for the demonstration of a successful integration and collaboration between American Universities and Colleges. In February 2018, two-second year residents from the ZIMFETP travelled to Seattle to the University of Washington for a six-week MPH practicum. The residents ( Dr Christine Gabaza and Dr Reginald Mhene ) spend time at the department of health where they get to see how the state implements public health programs. They also attend seminars and presentations at Washington University. The two residents are currently working on a potential project at the department of health; An evaluation of the timeliness and completeness of TB surveillance in Washington State.
