The Management Academy for Public Health: a new paradigm for public health management development



The Management Academy for Public Health: a new paradigm for public health management development



Journal of Public Health Management and Practice 8(2): 66-78



Research has established a need to develop management skills among public health professionals. The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill created the Management Academy for Public Health as a pilot program for this specialized training need. This article describes why a management academy for public health managers was formed, its curriculum and instructional methods, and the evaluation findings from its first year. The program sponsors hope to effect individual and organization level change, eventually leading to improved community health. Results suggest that this innovative program gives public health professionals needed skills and improves their job performance.
