Workforce Improvement Projects

Public health practice projects proposed and funded by CDC programs and conducted by AAMC member institutions

Workforce Improvement Projects (WIPs) are one method used by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to solicit proposals from members of academic partner institutions in topic areas that are of interest to the CDC Centers, Institutes and Offices (CIOs).

WIPs are available to AAMC members or members of these academic organizations: the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health, and the Association for Prevention Teaching and Research. Since 2012, over $800,000 in funding has been awarded to AAMC member institutions.
