The University of Oklahoma College of Public Health is proud to be a "Local Performance Site" for the HRSA funded, HHS Region 6 South Central Public Health Training Center (R6-PHTC) housed at Tulane University in New Orleans. The mission of the R6-PHTC is to strengthen the technical, managerial, and leadership competence of the current public health workforce and to advance the knowledge and skills of the future public health workforce. Helping Tulane with this mission are three local performance sites, including the one at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.

The Region 6 Public Health Training Center will:

1) Establish and strengthen the field placement of public health students;

2) Facilitate faculty and students‟ collaborative projects to enhance public health services in medically underserved communities;

3) Provide skills-based training and education to frontline and middle managers in public agencies and organizations in Region 6, and

4) Assess the health personnel needs of Region 6 to guide the planning and development of training programs.
