The New England Public Health Training Center (NEPHTC) is a partnership among schools and programs of public health, related academic institutions, and public health agencies and organizations. It works to strengthen the technical, scientific, managerial, and leadership competencies of the current and future public health workforce in New England to ensure that the region has the capacity to deliver high quality essential public health services over the long term.
NEPHTC engages state and local public health agencies and community-based agencies across the six New England states. Boston University School of Public Health serves as the regional office, collaborating with additional Local Performance Sites (LPS).
The NEPHTC Local Performance Sites, all of which have a long history of collaborating to train the public health workforce, are:
|Local Performance Sites||Geographic Area|
|Boston University School of Public Health||Massachusetts and Vermont|
|Dartmouth Institute of Health Policy and Clinical Practice||New Hampshire|
|University of Massachusetts Amherst School of Public Health||New England Community Health Workforce|
|University of New England School of Community and Population Health||Maine|
|Yale School of Public Health||Connecticut and Rhode Island|
NEPHTC serves over 8,000 frontline and middle management staff working in state and local public health agencies across New England. It also supports thousands of community health workers across the region who play important roles in connecting low-income, racial, or ethnic minority residents to clinical and preventive services, and other personnel in community-based agencies that are part of the public health system (such as AIDS service organizations, behavioral health agencies, and federally qualified health centers).
