Welcome to WiCPHET

Building upon both long-standing relationships and partnerships in Wisconsin's public health education community, the Wisconsin Center for Public Health Education and Training (WiCPHET), housed in the University of Wisconsin-Madison's School of Medicine and Public Health's Department of Population Health Sciences,  began to work towards the development of a competent, sufficient, and diverse public health workforce to promote and protect health. Developed in 2010 and supported by HRSA funding, the WiCPHET began to strategically coordinate the academic and public health training resources in the State of Wisconsin in order to

  • Cultivate the pipeline of future public health professionals,
  • Integrate statewide professional preparation and continuing education opportunities, and
  • Strengthen professional development for the existing public health workforce throughout Wisconsin, especially those working with underserved populations.

When HRSA funding for individual states ended in 2014, the WiCPHET became part of the Region V Great Lakes Public Health Training Collaborative (GLPHTC). GLPHTC was created to improve the nation's public health by strengthening the competencies of the current and future public health workforce through the provision of education and training services.

GLPHTC serves the HRSA Region V area and consists of the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health, which functions as the Collaborative's central office, Indiana University Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health, the University of Michigan School of Public Health, the University of Minnesota School of Public Health, The Ohio State University College of Public Health, and the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health (WiCPHET).

On this website you will find links to videos, podcasts and continuing education modules related to a variety of public health topics. New materials will regularly be added to the site, so please check back to see what other educational offerings are available.
