The Region V Public Health Training Center is part of the national Public Health Learning Network, a consortium of ten regional Public Health Training Centers and the country’s most comprehensive resource for public health workforce development. We seek to strengthen the skills of the current and future public health workforce through learning tools, continuing education, and student development.
The RVPHTC is located at the University of Michigan School of Public Health and serves as the central coordinating office for the region which includes Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin.
The RVPHTC works to strengthen the capacity of the region’s public health workforce by assessing training needs, responding to those needs through the development and delivery of distance-based continuing education, and engaging students from across the region in public health practice. This work is done in partnership with Community-Based Training Partners and Technical Assistance Providers.
