About us

The Mid-Atlantic Regional Public Health Training Center (MAR-PHTC) is a partnership among schools of public health and public health agencies and organizations. One of ten Public Health Training Centers funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration, we support the development of the current and future public health workforce across Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington D.C., and West Virginia. Along with our partners, we aim to fulfill our mission to contribute to health equity by supporting a quality workforce expansion to best serve the regional and local health needs and critical emerging health problems.

We work with state and local public health agencies by assessing their needs and creating training plans to suit those needs. We also serve thousands of other personnel in community-based agencies, such as behavioral health agencies and federally qualified health centers. Additionally, MAR-PHTC facilitates training public health students in the field, to encourage them to ultimately practice in underserved areas after graduation.
