International Night is presented through the Training Programs in Epidemiology and Public Health Interventions Network (TEPHINET) in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Center for Global Health, Division of Public Health Systems and Workforce Development (DPHSWD).
This year, 229 abstracts, and 100 photos illustrating the scientific work of FETP residents and graduates were submitted for consideration. We are very pleased about the quality of the submissions and we appreciate the support and encouragement given to the participants by their FETP resident advisors and other mentors. Many of the photos that were submitted last year are now displayed in CDCs headquarters, posted on CDCs website and used to help educate the general public about the important work we are doing to save lives
Most people come to work to do a good job. However there are frequently obstacles that can overwhelm even the best worker. It's tempting to jump to a solution, or to give up and conclude 'it will always be this way.' This session will introduce you to SMDP's most popular tool, and you will learn how to:
-Use a methodical approach to analyze a performance problem
-Create a cause/effect diagram to determine the reasons for a problem
-Prioritize reasons before designing a solution
With limited time and resources, how does a health professional set priorities that achieve program goals? As part of the launch of SMDP's new classroom module for Health Program Planning, CDC's Dr. Katherine Wilson will lead you through a simple tool that can help set priorities during the planning process.
If you attend this webinar you will be able to:
-Describe how the new SMDP program planning module can fit in a management curriculum
-List the major steps in program planning
-Appreciate the role of prioritization in public health management and planning
-Use the prioritization tool to make program decisions

Stakeholders frequently recommend training as a solution to an organizations problem. It is not unusual for a training event to be announced before a needs assessment is even conducted. In this session, participants will learn key questions to ask to help ensure trainees apply what they learn when they return to the workplace. Webinar participants are encouraged to bring their own training projects to share. The session is related to the domain of Organizational Capacity in the Washington University Sustainability Framework.
When you complete this session you will be able to:
- Identify performance problems which can be addressed through training
- Ask key questions to identify the root cause of a performance problem
- Develop a training needs assessment
After the webinar participants will have the opportunity to receive feedback about their own needs assessment processes and tools.
