Funded by the HRSA Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Bureau, the Tulane CEMCH 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 program, guided by the twelve MCH leadership competencies, also collaborates with other members of the wider community.
Among our offerings is the CEMCH Scholar Program, which provides mentored self-development activities to help students become leaders in the field of maternal and child health. This four-semester program includes:
Eligibility Requirements for the CEMCH Scholar Program:

All applicants are also expected to meet by phone with program staff August 14 - 16; please indicate in your cover letter general availability for these days. (If none of those days work, please suggest an alternate day/time).

In addition to fulfilling course responsibilities, Scholars are expected to set aside an additional 5 – 10 hours per week throughout the school year, to enable their successful completion of other Scholar requirements.
