Regional Public Health Training Centers (PHTC) Program

The Regional PHTC Program seeks to increase the number of individuals in the public health workforce, enhance the quality of such workforce, and improve the ability of this workforce to meet national, state, and local health care needs.

Specifically, this program aims to strengthen the public


health workforce through tailored training and technical assistance (TA)1 through collaborative community-based projects.

Training curricula will provide skill-based, interactive instruction and quality education using multiple modalities (e.g., synchronous, asynchronous, distance-based, bi-directional video, and in-person), underscoring the current eight cross-cutting core public health competency domains in the primary areas of (1) analytical/assessment, (2) policy development/ program planning, (3) communication skills, (4) cultural competency, (5) community dimension of practice, (6) public health sciences, (7) financial planning and management and, (8) leadership and systems thinking.2 Each Regional PHTC must develop training in at least three primary areas listed above and may develop trainings in the sub competencies3 and beyond based on local health needs assessments.

Regional PHTCs seek to develop current and future public health leaders though Leadership Institutes.

Moreover, the program aims to establish and enhance collaborative partnerships among state and local health departments, primary care providers, and related organizations (to include non-traditional partners) as they work together to address critical local public health needs.
