Managing MCH Programs
SPH MC 820
This course helps students develop skills in program implementation and management. The class moves through the implementation process step-by-step, culminating in the development of a complete programmatic management plan as the course final. Class meetings build from the initial steps of problem definition through the development of a logic model, monitoring and evaluation planning, incorporation of appropriate strategies for engaging relevant stakeholders, design of program outreach materials, and development of a program budget. Assignments are progressive: as new components are added to student plans, previous components are revised and refined. The class emphasizes team work as well as development of individual skills. Students learn to critique one another's work in workshop sessions scheduled at key junctures in the course. Students are expected to have completed MC725 before taking MC820. Exceptions are possible, however, for students from concentrations other than MCH and occasionally for students who can draw on substantial experience around a particular MCH topic.
