This archived webinar
focuses on determining essential core competencies for job positions within public health organizations. Key to a public health organization’s ability to successfully meet the health needs of its community is having staff whose competencies are well matched to the types of activities they perform in their positions. Job descriptions
that detail the competencies, including both skills and knowledge, required for a position are good practice for all organizations seeking to build a competent workforce through successful recruitment, hiring, and professional development, and a required element for health departments seeking accreditation through the Public Health Accreditation Board.
The Core Competencies for Public Health Professionals (Core Competencies) developed by the Council on Linkages Between Academia and Public Health Practice describe foundational skills desirable for professionals engaging in the practice, education, and research of public health. For any job position, the critical competencies within the Core Competencies will vary depending on the responsibilities and activities of individuals in that position. When developing a job description, it is important to determine which competencies are most essential for that position.
