The Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE), in close collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH), and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), are currently accepting applications for the Applied Epidemiology Fellowship Program. This program, established to train recent graduates in the expanding field of applied epidemiology, is designed for recent or impending master’s or doctoral-level graduates in epidemiology or a related field who are interested in the practice of public health at the state or local level. While the program provides rigorous training for its participants, it is also designed with flexibility in order to meet the particular interests of the fellow. Fellows are matched to a state health department for a two-year fellowship position based on program area of interest.
Fellowship Program Areas
Closely designed based on the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) program and using a mentorship model, the CDC/CSTE Applied Epidemiology Fellowship offers a unique opportunity for graduates to acquire and develop epidemiologic skills through high-quality, on-the-job training. Fellows work closely with highly trained and experienced epidemiologists at the state and local level as well as those working at the federal level with the CDC.
The deadline to submit applications is January 9, 2015. All application materials must be received by the deadline to be considered for acceptance. Incomplete applications or applications received after this deadline will not be considered.
Questions may be directed to Ms. Valerie Underwood, the workforce and fellowship administrator at CSTE, via email at VUnderwood@cste.org or phone 770-458-3811.
