Are you ready to contribute to state or national health transformation? Would you like to elevate your implementation skills and leadership capacity? Don’t miss out! Sign up now to join a unique online course to be offered fall semester 2018.

The National MCH Workforce Development Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill offers an online, interdisciplinary course designed to prepare participants to contribute successfully to state and national health transformation. The course, “Applied Methods for Health Transformation Implementation in MCH”, is open to any MCH professional interested in lifelong learning AND to students enrolled in any of the MCHB-funded Graduate Education Programs to Educate the Next Generation of MCH Leaders (CoE, Catalyst, LEND, LEAH, DBP, MCH Nutrition, and PPC Programs). Course participants may elect to earn graduate credit (1 or 3-credits) or a certificate of completion. There are no prerequisites. Learning is asynchronous, with weekly modules and an opportunity to connect with an online MCH community of practice.

Students and professionals benefit from engaging and interacting with each other via the online learning platform. By viewing online lectures and presentations, sharing experiences and ideas in weekly discussion forums, and responding to varied assignments, course participants gain essential competencies in evidence-based decision making, implementation, systems thinking, and change management. By having a mixed cohort of credit-seeking and certificate-seeking participants from interdisciplinary graduate programs and state Title V programs, course participants are able to network with an enthusiastic and skilled online learning community.

Demand for the course has exceeded expectations. The course has been offered four times previously, and will be held again in fall 2018. Registration is open now.
