The Tulane Maternal and Child Health Leadership Training program is now accepting applications for new Scholars!

Funded by the HRSA Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Bureau, the Tulane MCHLT Program seeks to improve the health of women, infants, children, youth and their families through development of the MCH workforce. We provide opportunities for training and experience for students at the School of Public Health, as well as current public health practitioners.  Our programs, guided by the twelve MCH leadership competencies, also impact other members of the New Orleans community.

The MCHLT Scholar Program provides mentored self-development activities to help students become leaders in the field of maternal and child health. This two to three-semester program includes:

  • Coursework
  • Service outreach
  • Self-reflection
  • Readings and discussion
  • 5-year development plan
  • Mentoring meetings

Eligibility Requirements

  • MPH students entering in 2014 (starting in Spring, Summer, or Fall 2014)
  • US Citizen or permanent resident
  • Enrolled in the GCHB department
  • Concentrating in MCH

For the incoming cohort, Scholars will be expected to carry out the following…

  • First semester: enroll in and successfully complete GCHB 6140 (with tuition for this course covered by the MCHLT), participate in service outreach, participate in additional personal development activities and meetings
  • Second semester: Develop an outreach project, participate in additional personal development activities and meetings (small stipend provided)
  • Third semester (contingent on continued Federal funding): Develop a sustainability plan for your outreach project, participate in additional personal development activities and meetings (small stipend provided)
