Welcome to the Workforce and Leadership Development Page!
AMCHP’s Workforce and Leadership Development (WLD) team’s mission is to support a diverse, effective, and competent workforce in state and territorial Title V programs. In an effort to strengthen the maternal and child health (MCH) workforce, our WLD team develops resources, trainings, and manages three cohorts within AMCHP's Leadership Lab, New Director Leaders, Next Generation Leaders, and the Family Leaders cohort. The WLD team also manges AMCHP's
Innovation Station a database of cutting edge, emerging, and promising best practices in MCH. This database allows Title V workforce to learn more about MCH programs across the U.S. and to benefit from the lessons learned from one another.
Developing MCH Leaders
AMCHP believes that leaders can be developed by enhancing natural ability with learned skill development through formal and informal learning opportunities, experience, dialogue, role modeling, feedback, mentoring and coaching, and more. This is especially important during a time where health reform is transforming the public health system. Assuring quality MCH services for this ubiquitous public health landscape will require MCH professionals to take a strong leadership role, and AMCHP has the resources and programs to develop strong MCH leaders through the following resources and programs.
