Public Health Boot Camp

Fostering future HIV community leaders — an intensive public health training institute

Public Health Boot Camp is an intensive five-day certificate program provided by the AIDS Foundation of Chicago and the DePaul University Master of Public Health Program. The intensive training program is designed to enhance professional knowledge of core public health concepts among HIV/AIDS organizational leaders. Program participants are selected through a competitive application process.

The training program aims to improve the quality and effectiveness of HIV prevention and care services in metropolitan Chicago by exposing HIV/AIDS organizational leaders to core concepts of public health science, theory and practice. The Boot Camp provides participants with the necessary tools to apply what they have learned to actual HIV/AIDS programmatic activities.

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact Riley Smith at 312-334-0982 or email PHBC@aidschicago.org.

Applications are no longer being accepted for the 2015 program. The application process for the 2016 program will begin in February 2016.
