PHTC Student Field Placement Program By the Numbers

NEPHTC thanks our colleagues at Region 4 PHTC (Emory and University of Alabama) for putting together this data on the PHTC Student Field Placement Program. These data show that the PHTCs, a HRSA-funded program providing public health workforce development, collectively placed 693 students from July 1, 2018 to June 30,21.  74% of students worked on projects for Medically Underserved Areas. Projects in New England can be found here.  NEPTHC is proud to be able to support public health graduate students as they develop their skills to work in communities to improve population health.
