Master of Public Health Competencies & HELI Alumni

Master of Public Health Competencies book cover

We’d like to highlight a recently published textbook that includes the efforts of two HELI Alumni!

Master of Public Health Competencies: A Case Study Approach includes 22 public health case studies written by public health faculty and practitioners from across the country. HELI 2010 Alum Anthony J. Santella, DrPH, MPH, edited the volume & co-authored two chapters and met chapter contributor and HELI 2013 Alumna Nandi A. Marshall, DrPH, MPH, CHES, during the project.

From the Publisher

In October 2016, the Council on Education in Public Health (CEPH) released new competencies that all accredited Master of Public Health (MPH) programs must adhere to. This book, Master of Public Health Competencies: A Case Study Approach, covers each of the 22 required competencies to demonstrate how they can be applied in public health practice.

Spanning all five key disciplines of Public Health – biostatistics, epidemiology, health policy and management; social and behavioral sciences; and environmental and occupation health – the text covers the full breadth of public health. Each chapter is focused on a single CEPH competency and provides the background of the public health issue, followed by a case study to learn that competency and understand its application. Written by MPH faculty and community practitioners and based on real world public practice, these concise case studies are accompanied by discussion questions that facilitate classroom discussion.

Watch the webinar, Using Public Health Case Studies in Your MPH Curricula to see how the authors use them to teach and reinforce CEPH competencies.

Congratulations Drs. Santella & Marshall!
