ASPH NEWS OF NOTE
CDC/CSTE Applied Epidemiology Fellowship Seeking Applicants: Deadline February 1

ASPH, the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have announced the request for applications for the Applied Epidemiology Fellowship Program. This program, which trains recent graduates in the field of applied epidemiology, is now entering into its eleventh year. During a two-year assignment, participating fellows develop applied epidemiologic skills during a high quality, mentored training experience in order to prepare them for a long-term career 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 fellows. The fellowship program is designed for recent master 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.

Fellows are carefully matched to their host agencies based on their own career interests and available opportunities of the host agencies and, upon placement, will develop a comprehensive set of core skills through applied competency-based training and experiences.

The deadline to submit applications is February 1, 2013. 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.

For further information and to apply to this program, visit the CSTE website at www.cste.org. Applications are available online.

Questions may be directed to Ms. Ashlyn Beavor, the Workforce and Fellowship Administrator at CSTE, via email at abeavor@cste.org.
