The Objectives of the Summit
Present and examine various curriculum models in public health social work education so that institutions without such programs can determine the best “fit” for their institutions. Models will include joint/dual degree programs as well as programs that incorporate public health content into social work curriculum. One important focus of the summit will be to partner with historically black colleges and universities that wish to include public health content in their social work programs or develop joint/dual degree programs.
Develop competencies for public health social work students.
Develop a dissemination plan for outcomes of and products resulting from the summit.
Strengthen the existing network of programs and schools who are providing public health social work education and training.
