Thanks,

The capstone paper will serve as a valuable tool for your self-assessment of your competency level across the eight domains of the core competencies for Public Health Professionals. The Core Competencies for Public Health Professionals1 (i.e., Core Competencies) are a consensus set of foundational skills for the broad practice of public health, as defined by the 10 Essential Public Health Services. The Core Competencies are organized into eight skill areas or domains that cut across public health disciplines. The purpose of this assessment is to help you explore your level of competence within these eight domains. Please note that the signature assignment instructions includes content directly from the competencies document.

By assessing your level of knowledge or skill for each competency statement described, you will be able to prioritize your learning time to focus on those areas that are most important to you and to concentrate where the need for training and learning may be greatest.

The competency assessment is divided into the following eight domains:

• Policy Development/Program Planning Skills

• Communication Skills

• Cultural Competency Skills

• Community Dimensions of Practice Skills

• Public Health Sciences Skills

• Financial Planning and Management Skills

• Leadership and Systems Thinking Skills

Tier 1 – Entry Level: Tier 1 competencies apply to public health professionals who carry out the day-to-day tasks of public health organizations and are not in management positions. Responsibilities of these professionals may include data collection and analysis, fieldwork, program planning, outreach, communications, customer service, and program support.

Instructions: Complete steps 1-3 for each domain.

1) Self-Perceived Proficiency: Read each competency statement listed within a domain. In each domain, and for each competency statement, think about the level at which you are currently able to perform the skill. Then rate your level of proficiency on each domain by selecting or highlighting the number on the domain from “None” (1) to “Proficient” (4) that best describes your self-reported level of expertise for that statement. Note: The competency statements listed in each domain should be interpreted as broadly as possible to apply to your position and principal setting of employment. In the example below, you would select number “4” for “Proficient” if you think you are excelling at this domain or select “1” for “None” if you feel you need a great deal of improvement.

2) Evidence of Proficiency: At the end of each domain please provide detailed explanation of the key BSPH courses and/or approved public health experiences that helped you achieve the above mentioned competency. Provide at least two examples of evidence and describe in detail how the assignments and/or projects helped you reach your perceived proficiency. The evidence of proficiency could include your assignments, papers, presentations and/or projects (e.g., brochures, newsletters, fact sheets, flyers, pictures) from your volunteer hours.

3) Proficiency Improvement: Discuss at least two opportunities for improvement in a particular skill or content area.

4) Plan for Lifelong Learning: Discussion/Conclusion: Write at least one paragraph discussing a plan for lifelong learning that incorporates high professional and ethical standards, leadership, and cultural competencies and their evolving role in society. The plan may include, but is not limited to, the following: a) participating in continuing education workshops (e.g., at work, online); b) obtaining professional certifications; and c) seeking an additional degree.
