Education For Health: A Vision For 2020
New Educational Models for Population Health Education

with the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U)
successful practices in population and public health education at 2-year and
4-year undergraduate institutions were also collected.
Authors chosen to develop
case-studies worked closely with discipline-specific Task Force organizations
or AAC&U to complete 47 case-studies in the following disciplines:
Case Studies By Discipline
Review and Selection Process
Ninety-eight applications were
received in response to a Request for Applications (RFA) that was released
February 2011. Members of the Task Force reviewed the applications from
health professions education programs and 35 were selected and developed into
full case studies. AAC&U reviewed and selected 12 applications to
develop into case studies from undergraduate public health programs.
AAC&U and members of the Task Force worked with the authors of the
applications they were selected to develop the case studies.
