ASPH NEWS OF NOTE
ASPH/CDC Public Health Fellowship Program Now Accepting Applications

CDCASPH is pleased to offer recent graduates from ASPH-member, Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH)-accredited Schools of Public Health an exciting opportunity to gain practical public health experience at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Applications are currently being accepted for the 2013 ASPH/CDC Public Health Fellowship Program; the deadline to apply is April 11.

The ASPH/CDC Public Health Fellowship Program offers outstanding opportunities for early-career public health professionals by enabling them to train at CDC on a variety of high-priority public health issues. ASPH/CDC Public Health Fellows work closely with nationally recognized experts within the nation’s premier health promotion, prevention, and preparedness agency and global leader in public health.

“The ASPH/CDC Fellowship was a great next step for me following graduation. I have received outstanding mentorship, training, and practical experience in the fields of public health policy and health communications in my host office,” said Mr. Quinn Lundquist, current ASPH/CDC Fellow. “I have broad interests, and my hybrid policy/communications fellowship is a unique and applied training experience, and I have picked up many valuable skills to take with me in the future.”

Fellowships will be based at various CDC offices, most of which are located in Atlanta, GA, but may also be located at CDC’s regional offices. The fellowship position is a full-time opportunity for a one-year period beginning in late September or October 2013. The fellowship may be extended for an additional year, pending available funding and mutual agreement by the fellow, CDC, and ASPH. Detailed program information and all application instructions can be accessed at http://fellowships.asph.org/index.cfm

To qualify for this fellowship, candidates must have received their masters or doctorate degrees from an ASPH-member, CEPH-accredited, School of Public Health within the last five years and also be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident (Green Card). Preference will be given to candidates with a Certification in Public Health (CPH).
