Education Models for Population Health Education

Education Models for Population Health Education

These 47 case studies and companion teaching materials 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 describe factors influencing the adoption of population health content and support the educational objectives of Healthy People 2020. 

Case Studies By Discipline

Background

The Healthy People Curriculum Task Force collaborated with the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) to gather successful practices in population and public health education at undergraduate institutions. 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: pharmacy (6), medicine (9), nursing (9), advanced practice nursing (1), physician assistants (2), allied health (3), interprofessional prevention education (5), four-year colleges with public health programs (10), and two-year community colleges with public health programs (2). These case studies and companion teaching materials provide educators with resources that support the educational objectives of Healthy People 2020 and describe factors influencing the adoption of population health content

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)
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.
