Public Health Trainings

The Maine Public Health Training Center (MPHTC) is a growing resource of educational training opportunities to help public health workers and others broaden their knowledge of critical issues affecting the health of Maine people.

The ultimate goal of MPHTC is a healthier Maine. We hope to achieve this by improving the capacity, knowledge and performance of Maine’s current and future public health workers. MPHTC was jointly developed by the Maine CDC, The New England Public Health Training Center at the University of New England, Maine Public Health Association, Muskie School of Public Service at the University of Southern Maine, and the Hanley Center for Health Leadership, with contributions from many other organizations statewide and across New England.
