Welcome to the New Jersey Public Health Training Center (NJPHTC) - Case Based Training Library (CBTL). This project sponsored by the New Jersey Public Health Training Center and the Department of Preventive Medicine and Community Health at Rutgers University-New Jersey Medical School.

The New Jersey Public Health Training Center seeks to create opportunities for training and development of current and future public health professionals. The NJPHTC- CBTL was created to provide case-based teaching material for instructors, who teach public health students and professionals. Cases provided through the NJPHTC- CBTL, are a collection of cases previously published on the legacy UMDNJ- Case Based Training Institute and the NJ Preparedness Training Consortium. Case topics include, but are not limited to, chronic diseases, environmental health, foodborne illness, health education, emergency preparedness training, maternal/child health, and occupational health. A number of cases included were also provided from partnering organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC) and the Preventive Medicine program at SUNY Upstate Medical University.
