The North Carolina Institute for Public Health (NCIPH) offers year-round workshops and trainings for public health leaders and staff.

At NCIPH, we value our role in shaping the professional education and leadership development of the local, state and national public health workforce. We align ourselves with the stated values of UNC Gillings to ensure we train and develop public health professionals within a climate that is intentionally diverse and inclusive. We are committed to fostering a learning environment that centers sustained equity and inclusion and which prepares our program participants to better partner with and meet the needs of the diverse communities they serve.

We follow the University’s Non-Discrimination Policy. As required by federal law, the University does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs or activities, in admission, or in employment. Information about the University’s procedures for addressing discrimination on the basis of sex is available in the University’s Policy on Prohibited Sexual Harassment Under Title IX and in the University’s Policy on Prohibited Discrimination, Harassment and Related Misconduct.

NCIPH continues to monitor and make decisions about how best to provide courses in light of COVID-19. Our course descriptions contain the latest information about when and how our programs are being offered.
