Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health

Started in 1995, the ASPPH/CDC Public Health Fellowship Program has fostered career development in areas such as Epidemiology, Public Health Policy, Health Communications, Biostatistics, Informatics, Monitoring & Evaluation, and Strategic Information, to name a few. Fellowship assignments are full-time opportunities with possible placement at CDC headquarters in Atlanta, GA and CDC regional offices nationwide.

This next generation of public health leaders will have an opportunity to round out their academic training and gain practical public health experience through exposure to state-of-the-art technology and databases; acquisition of skills and knowledge to enhance their careers; and interaction with technical experts in their chosen fields.

 Fellowship tracks include Health Education, Interpersonal Violence, Overdose Prevention, Suicide Prevention, Mental Health, Health Equity, Emergency Preparedness, and Core Public Health.
