CSTE/CDC Applied Epidemiology Program

Program Type: Resources - Information or materials that might help develop a program/project in a community but can not be defined as a Best Practice, Promising Practice, or Local Effort.

Description:
In response to the need for a skilled workforce in applied epidemiology at state and local health departments, the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) has established the Applied Epidemiology Fellowship Program in partnership with the CDC and the ASPH. The goal of the fellowship is to provide a high quality on-the-job training experience in applied epidemiology for recent graduates, and to prepare fellows for long-term career placement at the state and local level. Based on their career aspirations and available positions, fellows are carefully matched to a state or local health agency for two years under the guidance of an experience mentor. During their tenure, fellows will be expected to complete activities and achieve competencies related to epidemiologic methods, communication skills, public health practice, policy, and legal issues. The Fellow may be placed in Georgia, Kansas, Illinois or Indiana. Fellowship assignments are open to any individual with a doctoral degree that has completed at least three graduate-level epidemiology courses and one graduate-level biostatistics course. U.S. Citizenship is required. CSTE hopes to have doctoral-level fellows accepted for inclusion in a September 2005 orientation. Please visit the CSTE website at http://www.cste.org/Workforcedev/main1.htm for more information. Those interested in the chronic disease position, should send an e-mail to fellowship@cste.org to obtain an application. Applications for this position will be accepted until Monday, August 15.
