ASPPH announces the opening of the application cycle for the CDC/CSTE Applied Epidemiology Fellowship Program. 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), support this fellowship to train recent graduates in the expanding field of applied epidemiology.
The Fellowship 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.
