This article describes training standards (11 competencies and 36 sub-competencies) to ensure workforce competency in disaster medicine and public health. These standards were developed by an expert working group convened in 2010 by the American Medical Association Center for Public Health Preparedness and Disaster Response to review and begin to integrate previous work on core competencies.
