Abstract

The authors developed a list of population-based public health competencies. They surveyed the chief executive officer, chief medical officer, and chief quality control person at a randomly selected group of managed care organizations drawn from the membership of the American Association of Health Plans. The authors asked them to rank those competencies that were essential for them in their work with their organization. The authors identified both the most commonly required competencies across all groups and the most essential for each specific job in the managed care organization. This article discusses these competencies and their implications for those who are responsible for ensuring that graduates have achieved required competencies.
