Free Maternal and Child Health Online Modules

Are you working in the maternal and child health arena and looking to improve or update your skills? The MCH Navigator project might help. It was launched by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) of the U.S. DHHS to address the professional development needs of the field.

The MCH Navigator is a centralized portal for pursuing continuous learning in maternal and child health. It was designed as 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 free modules and learning resources here are meant to complement formal college and graduate level educational programs.

The website includes learning resources on basic information in MCH, conceptual models, management, epidemiology, leadership, and communication. Continuing Education Credits or completion certificates are offered for some of these units. You’ll find resources on topics from socioecological models to basic epidemiology for data users to program planning and evaluation.

The MCH Navigator at Georgetown University is funded by a grant from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau.
