The Association of Teachers of Maternal and Child Health (ATMCH) aims to grow and support excellence in teaching MCH. ATMCH broadly defines teachers of MCH as all who provide MCH-related content to others. A teacher is one who engages with a learner, regardless of the teacher's or learner's place along the continuum of life-long learning. ATMCH offers a forum through which interdisciplinary MCH-related faculty, staff, practicing professionals, and students can share knowledge, ideas, and skills essential to teaching MCH.
ATMCH helps people educate others about Maternal and Child Health more effectively…
regardless of where they are on their educational journey.
