Healthy People 2020 is an ambitious, science-based, 10-year agenda for improving the health of all Americans. A key component to this goal is ensuring that health professions education, as well as all education, is advancing the objectives of Healthy People 2020.
The Successful Practices Project encourages the creation and dissemination of institutional case studies that support the Healthy People 2020 educational objectives as defined in the Education for Health Framework.
The case studies address the following Healthy People 2020 educational objectives:
PHI-6: Increase the proportion of 2-year colleges that offer public health or related associate degrees and/or certificate programs.
PHI-4: Increase the proportion of 4-year colleges and universities that offer public health or related majors and/or minors.
ECBP-12-17: Increase the inclusion of core clinical prevention and population health content in health professions education.
New! Objective in public comment period:
ECBP-xx: Increase the proportion of academic institutions with health professions education programs whose prevention curricula include interprofessional educational experiences.
The case studies describe the development of successful prevention, population health, and public health programs in graduate health professions education programs, as well as in 2-year and 4-year undergraduate institutions.
Authors chosen to develop case-studies worked closely with discipline-specific APTR Healthy People Curriculum Task Force organizations or the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) to complete 47 case-studies in a variety of disciplines.
This project was made possible through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Public Health and Science (OPHS), Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion.
