Evidence-Based Public Health - Fall 2018



Primary Competency

Public Health Sciences Skills

The Rocky Mountain Public Health Training Center is offering an opportunity for public health professionals from around the country to participate in a unique, online training series, which covers core concepts like: defining public health issues, conducting community assessments, prioritizing options, and evaluating program and policy impacts. Read more about the topics.

Participants will watch recorded lectures and complete homework assignments and then attend online live learning sessions. A facilitator will lead guided discussions and activities related to the online content with the cohort of participants.  A topic expert will also be on hand to answer questions and engage in the discussion. These sessions will provide an opportunity for participants to connect evidence-based decision making concepts to their daily work.

This online course uses a flipped classroom approach. This gives you the opportunity to work through course content on your own time prior to connecting with a small group of peers during a live learning session. All from the convenience of your home or office.
