Determining Essential Core Competencies for Job Positions Webinar

Integrating the Core Competencies for Public Health Professionals (Core Competencies) into your workforce development efforts? Join the Public Health Foundation on Thursday, June 22, 2017 from 2-3pm EDT for a webinar focused on determining essential Core Competencies for job positions within public health organizations. The Core Competencies describe foundational skills desirable for professionals engaging in the practice, education, and research of public health, and for any given job, the critical competencies within the Core Competencies will vary depending on the responsibilities individuals in that position have and the activities in which they engage. This webinar will introduce a simplified form of the Core Competencies and a process for prioritizing competencies for job descriptions to help public health organizations identify high-priority competencies for positions within their organizations. In addition, Denver Public Health will share how they have used this process to identify essential Core Competencies for their organization and built upon this work to strengthen important skills within their workforce.
