Who Will Keep the Public Healthy?: Educating Public Health Professionals for the 21st Century COMPETENCIES FOR PUBLIC HEALTH WORKERS: A COLLECTION OF COMPETENCY SETS OF PUBLIC HEALTH-RELATED OCCUPATIONS AND PROFESSIONS This table of competency sets of public health-related occupations and professions was produced by the Office of Workforce Policy and Planning (OWPP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (www.phppo.cdc.gov/workforce) for the Competencies and Curriculum Workgroup of the Public Health Workforce Development Progress Workshop (June 18–19, 2001) and revised for the Public Health Workforce Development Annual Meeting (September 12–13, 2001). This expansive table of known competency sets is intended to be a resource document for persons interested in public health workforce development and includes on-line sources for all documents listed. The competency sets listed can be used as an aid to curricula developers and instructional designers in planning training programs for the Nation’s public health workers. These sets provide relevant examples of competency statements from occupations and professions that share in the work of public health. Used as a starting point, this list may help avoid duplication of efforts and build on the existing efforts among the many public health training centers across the U.S. The competency sets are differentiated into the following categories: Core—Basic Public Health (addresses the essential services of public health) New Topical Areas (emergency response, genomics, law) Functional Areas (leadership, management, supervisory, secretarial) Discipline Specific (professional, technical, entry-level, student) Other Topical Areas (MCH, STD, etc.). The competencies listed are those known at the time of printing. The comprehensive search for related public health worker competencies included numerous global and site-specific web searches, list-serv queries, and personal contacts. Since the field of workforce development is evolving, many competency sets—be they produced by government, academic institutions, public health and professional organizations—are in development. Therefore, this list may not contain all available competency sets. Inclusion of any competency set in the table does not imply Office of Workforce Policy and Planning endorsement. Please notify Kimberly Geissman, KGeissman@cdc.gov, OWPP/CDC of major omissions, corrections, and additions.
