Now more than ever, public health and healthcare organizations need a competent workforce that can develop, manage, and evaluate complex information systems. Application for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s Public Health Informatics Fellowship Program (PHIFP) is open from now through November 5 of this year.
PHIFP provides on-the-job training for doctoral- or master’s-prepared professionals. While working in CDC programs to enhance the agency’s informatics workforce, fellows help state and local health departments and international public health agencies solve complex public health informatics challenges. They apply expertise in information science, computer science, and information technology to address current and future informatics needs.
