Found below are the recipients of the Public Health Training Centers (PHTC) Model Practices and Promising Practices Series. The Series began in 2012 to document accomplishments and show how the PHTCs have advanced public health in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to training the public health workforce.
The Series expanded in 2013 to recognize both Model Practices and Promising Practices. Recognized practices advance one or more of the following PHTC legislative purposes: 1) establishing or strengthening field placements for students; 2) involving faculty members and students in collaborative projects to enhance public health services to medically underserved communities; 3) designating a geographic area or medically underserved population to be served; and 4) assessing the health personnel needs of the area.
Model Practices and Promising Practices were critiqued on a similar set of criteria, only differing on the evaluation criteria. A Model Practice must demonstrate proven results to improving a practice or outcome. A Promising Practice should describe how the practice will, once completed, demonstrate an impact.
