As part of the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, NCIPH delivers training, conducts research, and provides technical assistance to transform the practice of public health for all.
Since 1999, the North Carolina Institute for Public Health (NCIPH) has served as a bridge between academia and public health practice partners including state and local public health agencies, healthcare and community organizations.
Although formally established in 1999, some of NCIPH’s core programs, particularly continuing education, began in the 1930s as a core function of public health at UNC-Chapel Hill.
With a mission to “deliver training, conduct research and provide technical assistance to transform the practice of public health for all,” NCIPH serves as a resource for public health professionals across the state, region and country.
NCIPH staff come from a diverse range of fields, including public health, medical sciences, GIS technology, and more. In 2009, NCIPH received the Partners in Public Health Distinguished Group Award from the North Carolina Public Health Association.
The North Carolina Institute for Public Health’s work is interdisciplinary and revolves around three core departments:
- NCIPH offers face-to-face courses, trainings, and conferences for public health professionals.
- We maintain an extensive online training website with free e-learning modules.
- We also offer formal training in leadership development, business development, evidence-based public health, public health nursing and other topics.
- Our highly accomplished staff publishes and presents scholarly practice-based work.
