Public Health Training CenterPartner(s): Marita K. Murrman - Mailman School of Public Health
The New York City-Long Island-Lower Tri-County Public Health Training Center is a joint project of the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health and Stony Brook, State University of New York's (SUNY) Graduate Program in Public Health (SB-GPPH), in collaboration with the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH), the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC DOHMH), and the five county health departments of Suffolk, Nassau, Westchester, Rockland and Putnam Counties. The mission of the Center is to enhance the current and future public health workforce's ability to effectively deliver the 10 Essential Public Health Services to communities in New York City and Suffolk, Nassau, Westchester, Rockland and Putnam Counties. Through a grant awarded by the Health Resources and Services Administration, the Center was established in September 2011 as one of thirty-seven PHTCs nationally.
CCNMTL has partnered with the PHTC to develop a new website for the project and to design 14 training programs for the public health work force in its target area. The training programs, which will be developed over 4 years, include a combination of online, self-paced modules and blended learning (a combination of face-to-face and online lessons). Content will take advantage of real-life examples, written and reviewed by experts in the public health field.
As part of the PHTC website, CCNMTL developed a personal dashboard interface that allows users to track their progress through trainings, print and store certificates of completion, request continuing education credits, and update their user profile. CCNMTL will also help the Center promote the website and training programs through web and print communications.Access: Public
