Evaluation of Tribal Health Profession Opportunity Grants (ETHPOG), 2010-2015
OPRE awarded a contract to NORC at the University of Chicago, in conjunction with Red Star Innovations and the National Indian Health Board (NIHB), to design and conduct a comprehensive process and outcome evaluation of the Health Profession Opportunity Grants for Tribes, Tribal organizations, or Tribal College or Universities.
The goal of this evaluation is to provide documentation and lessons about diverse programmatic approaches to health professions training serving the tribal population. Interview and program operations data will be collected to provide an in-depth, systematic analysis of program implementation, operations, and outputs and outcomes in all tribal sites. Additionally, data will be compared within and across sites to examine correlations and patterns and generate hypotheses about the effectiveness of different program approaches for tribal populations. The evaluation will be closely coordinated with the evaluation of the 27 HPOG sites focused on TANF recipients and other low-income individuals.
The points of contact are Hilary Forster and Michael Dubinsky.
