Primary Care Workforce Development

Through the Tennessee Population Health Consortium, we train both clinical and non-clinical healthcare professionals as health coaches and community health workers (CHW) for primary care practices or community organizations through our targeted programs. Training and certifications are available in motivational interviewing, health coaching, and as a CHW. All of these are based on best practices proven to engage and activate patients to improve chronic condition and lifestyle management. We chose motivational interviewing as the foundation for our programs based on its efficacy and our track record demonstrating outcomes in Tennessee primary care organizations. If you would like to sign up for training, please contact Susan Butterworth at
