CDC’s Public Health Law Program is pleased to present this Public Health Law Competency Model (PHLCM), which was designed to provide a framework for the knowledge, skills, and abilities expected of entry-level, supervisory, and executive-level public health practitioners in public health law. A competency model is a list of competency statements, often organized into groupings or domains, attributable to satisfactory or exceptional employee performance. From an educational standpoint, competencies are logical building blocks upon which assessments of educational and professional development are based.
Currently, training and educational programs in public health law are quite varied in terms of the types of institutions offering these programs, and in terms of objectives, quality, and outcomes expected of participants. Because the number of organizations offering training in public health law has grown and as the breadth of law-related curricula continues to increase, PHLP has been working with partners and stakeholders to develop this competency model based on understanding law as a tool to advance public health and as the foundation of governmental public health practice in the United States.
