MCH Navigator

MCH Navigator A learning portal for maternal and child health professionals, students, and others working to improve the health and well being of women, children, and families.

The MCH Navigator project was launched by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) in early 2010 to address the professional development needs of the field. As budget reductions are shrinking funding for training-related time, cost, and travel, online resources are an effective alternative for continuing education. The MCH Navigator is a centralized portal for pursuing continuous learning in maternal and child health and is designed to help emerging and established MCH professionals map professional growth pathways, locating: • Where they are now – whether a student or an established professional, • Where they want to be – identifying the skills and competencies necessary for organizational and personal goals, and • The best route to get there – linking to targeted and effective learning resources. The MCH Navigator seeks to enhance access to currently available public health MCH learning resources by “matching” learner needs with learning paths. This initiative is intended to complement, and not be a substitute for, formal institutionally-based undergraduate or graduate education programs in maternal and child health.

Mission: With this learning system, individuals are able to access MCH content and skills training relevant to their position, their position level, and training and experience.

Do you have a project that you have been trying to launch, but you haven’t had the time? Is there an activity you would implement or resources you would create, if only you had extra staff to help? If so, consider hosting a Title V MCH Internship team during Summer 2020!

The National MCH Workforce Development Center (the “Center”) will support at least seven teams of MCH students to participate in internships in state Title V programs. If your state’s application is selected, a two-person student team will work to successfully complete a meaningful project of your choice. As a state preceptor, you will receive support from Center staff to facilitate the successful initiation and completion of an agreed upon scope of work.
