A partnership between the UW School of Medicine and Public Health, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the City of Milwaukee Health Department, the fellowship provides placements within the two academic health departments, as well as in regional health departments and community organizations. Fellows gain experience in urban and rural, governmental and nonprofit organizations and engage in work that prepares them to become public health leaders. Placements are for two years and are based on the interests and needs of fellows and agencies. Those interested in practicing public health in Wisconsin, minority candidates and those who would like to gain experience in rural communities are especially encouraged to apply.
The application process for the Fellowship is currently open and closes on December 16. Application information can be found on the web at: http://www.wiphfellowship.org/apply
