The Rocky Mountain Public Health Training Center (RM-PHTC) was established in 2014 within the Center for Public Health Practice at the Colorado School of Public Health (CSPH). With funding from the Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA), the RM-PHTC serves the states of Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming (Region VIII), and the 32 tribal nations located within this territory.
The RM-PHTC is committed to developing and supporting a high quality public health workforce that can improve population health. Our goals are to:
- Increase the functional knowledge and skills of the public health workforce and
- Link public health and health care sectors to improve population health, as outlined in the Affordable Care Act.
The Rocky Mountain Public Health Training Center focuses on providing high quality distance learning and peer networking opportunities for the public health workforce in Region VIII on a wide range of topics. Our Training Center also serves as the national lead on the topic of cancer.
We are working closely with our regional collaborators to ensure the public health workforce’s training needs are met.
Additionally, we support field placements and collaborative learning projects of students enrolled in masters or doctoral level public health programs. Read more...
