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 focus on workforce development in various areas of public health practice in domestic or international settings. While these opportunities do not have committed funding, CIOs have a genuine interest in pursuing these activities.

Completed Projects

Since 2012, over $800,000 in funding has been awarded to AAMC member institutions.
