ASPH NEWS OF NOTE
CDC/CSTE Public Health Informatics Fellowship Seeking Applicants: Deadline February 15

ASPH, along with its partners at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE), the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), and the Public Health Informatics Institute (PHII), has established the Applied Public Health Informatics Fellowship Program. This new program will provide high quality training assignments for recent graduates in the expanding field of applied public health informatics, while aiming to secure long-term career placement for the fellows at the state or local level.

During the one-year, mentored training assignments, fellows will work closely with experienced informaticists, epidemiologists, and public health practitioners at the state and local levels as well as with those working at the federal level with the CDC. The fellowship program is designed for recent master or doctoral level graduates in informatics or a related field who are interested in the practice of public health at the state or local level.

Fellows will be 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 for this program is February 15, 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.
