Education Models for Population Health Education

Successful Practices Project

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. These 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. They 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-12-16: Increase the inclusion of core clinical prevention and population health content in health professions education. 
  • ECBP-3: Increase the proportion of elementary, middle, and senior high schools that have health education goals or objectives that address the knowledge and skills articulated in the National Health Education Standards (high school, middle, elementary)
