The Center is a collaborative project of the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health and the State University of New York, Stony Brook’s Graduate Program in Public Health, in collaboration with the New York State Department of Health, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC DOHMH), and the five county health departments of Suffolk, Nassau, Westchester, Rockland and Putnam Counties. The NYC-LI-LTC PHTC offers flexible, web-based training programs for current public health workers as well as face-to-face training programs in the five boroughs of New York City and the five target counties. There is no charge for web-based or face-to-face training programs and many offer continuing education credits. The Center also supports a limited number of MPH student field placements and faculty/student collaborative projects for future public health workers to gain experience at participating local partner health departments and public health agencies.
The New York City-Long Island-Lower Tri-County Public Health Training Center is one of 37 Public Health Training Centers across the nation funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to provide fundamental training to the public health workforce.
