Do you desire to be a more effective manager but need some training or skill development? This is the course that will provide you what you need to get through the day-to-day challenges and hopefully make your move into management smoother and more successful!

The content of this course is applicable for all managers and supervisors working in local health departments including those new to their position (less than 2 years), experienced managers and supervisors with little or no formal supervisory training, and those aspiring to be promoted to a role in public health management. The curriculum and format of the Management and Supervision course were redesigned in 2017 to offer more interactive sessions, experiential learning activities, and breakout sessions for you to choose from based on your individual preferences along with the creation of individualized development plans.

The course is offered once a year. Sessions will be held on Tuesdays from 1 to 4pm 2-3 times a month.
