Fellowship for Training in Public Health Informatics

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers a 2-year postgraduate competency-based training program in public health informatics, the systematic application of information and computer science to public health practice, research, and learning. Fellows receive training in both informatics and public health, are assigned to teams involved in CDC information systems projects, provide technical assistance to state and local health departments and international agencies, and are given the opportunity to lead one or more major projects during their fellowship.

The deadline to apply for the fellowship period beginning July 2010 is on November 4, 2009. All supporting documentation must be received by November 12, 2009. Additional information regarding the Public Health Informatics Fellowship Program is available at http://www.cdc.gov/PHIFP/
