This session is a follow-up to a presentation at the 2014 NAO Conference that outlined how a competency-based education model can demonstrate the value of AHEC Health Careers Promotion and Preparation (HCPP) programs at the local, state and national level. Since then, a sub-committee of NAO CORE has explored how to implement the model. From sub-committee members, you’ll learn how to develop and map learning objectives to 5 HCPP core competencies, and learn ways to measure student learning. We’ll also discuss how to disseminate the results to showcase the value of HCPP programs. Bring your HCPP program info, learning objectives, and evaluation tools to share. Examples will also be provided. 


  • Describe how a competency-based education model can demonstrate the impact of AHEC HCPP programs
  • Develop and map measureable learning objectives to the 5 HCPP Core Competencies
  • Discuss ways to collect and analyze data on student learning at the center and state level
  • Inform the ongoing development and implementation of a national HCPP core competency model
