The OPHTC is dedicated to defining and closing gaps in public health education and training among the public health workforce in Oklahoma. This is accomplished through multiple objectives, including developing an academic and practice collaborative to promote workforce development, and assessing the training needs of workers and their organizations in relation to public health core competencies. Training resources are designed to enhance workers’ knowledge, skills, and abilities in order to provide essential public health services. The impact of the OPHTC’s efforts are evaluated and used to further the goal of workforce development. The OPHTC partners with state, local, and tribal health agencies, public health organizations, and other groups to reach as many individuals as possible.
