REGIONAL PUBLIC HEALTH TRAINING CENTER (PHTC): The purpose of the Regional PHTC program is to improve the Nation's public health system by strengthening the technical, scientific, managerial and leadership competencies of the current and future public health workforce through the provision of education, training and consultation services. The Regional PHTC Programs together comprise a national program that serves all 50 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the six U.S. Pacific Jurisdictions. Ten regions are funded to ensure that the U.S. and its jurisdictions all have access to public health workforce education and training. The work of the Regional PHTCs will be accomplished through the provision of education, training, and consultation to State, local, and Tribal health department staff as a primary audience, particularly frontline public health workers and middle managers. The secondary audience includes staff from other parts of the public health system such as non-profit organizations, federally qualified health centers, accountable care organizations, and hospitals, among others.
